Perinatal therapy

During the perinatal period, which spans from preconception to postpartum, many women experience symptoms similar to depression, such as sleep disturbances, changes in appetite, and compromised energy levels, without necessarily having depression. In this regard, we offer psychological support from a holistic and integrative perspective.

What do I offer you?
A safe and welcoming space where you can express your feelings, concerns, and fears without fear of external judgment. You will learn to manage the changes that motherhood brings with emotional and psychological support.

In our sessions you will get support for:

  • Managing stress and anxiety during pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum.
  • Exploring and processing emotions related to pregnancy and parenthood, as well as anxiety, fears, and concerns.
  • Support in adapting to physical, emotional, work-related, and social changes.
  • Promoting mindful parenting based on secure and loving attachment.
  • Resolving conflicts within the couple and adjusting to changes in the relationship dynamic.
  • Support for postpartum depression and other mood disorders.
  • Managing fatigue and physical and emotional exhaustion.
  • Guidance and support for decision-making related to pregnancy, childbirth, and baby care.
  • Accompanying you to strengthen the bond between you and your baby.
  • Tools for effective communication with your baby and enjoying a deep and meaningful connection.
  • Collaboration with lactation specialists and other professionals to address individual needs comprehensively.

Support before Pregnancy

During the search for pregnancy, emotional challenges related to the parents’ personal history, past experiences of abortion, fertility issues, and attachment styles, among others, may arise. These challenges can trigger intense emotional states that are difficult to manage, which could affect the mental health of the couple, the future child, and fertility itself.

The mental and physical health of the future baby will be influenced by the parents’ ability to properly attend to their needs. Therefore, it is crucial to have resources and support during this vital process.

To provide the best for our children, it is essential to heal individual wounds and cultivate a loving and healthy couple bond.

Postpartum Support

Postpartum presents specific challenges, including postpartum depression. In this stage, we explore strategies to manage stress and bonding techniques, all aimed at promoting a healthy and positive transition to life with a new baby. There is ample evidence of the importance of the early years of life in forming a psychologically healthy individual. Therefore, we also work with tools to promote the establishment of the mother-baby bond.

Understanding the limited time available to the mother during this stage, I offer various session models, including home therapy. Book below:
