Seeking counseling or psychotherapy for postpartum depression or any other reproductive issue is not a sign of weakness, but a sign of strength. Many people associate seeing a counselor or therapist with negative connotations when this is not the case at all. In fact, recognizing that something is not quite right with your mental health can be the first step into discovering inner peace and strengthening your self-resolve.
At Luna Counseling Center, we are familiar with all of the challenges that women face when it comes to pregnancy, parenting, and child loss. Having a child is one of the most rewarding aspects of human life, which in turn makes the mental health issues surrounding this joyous event even more difficult to navigate yourself. Depression, anxiety, and stress are very often associated with pregnancy and parenting, and many women suffer silently or assume that there is nothing that can help.
While reproductive mental health issues affect almost all women, the experience can vary greatly from individual to individual. Some may experience overt signs of depression and anxiety due to hormonal and lifestyle changes, while others may simply struggle with the feeling of being overwhelmed by the challenges of parenthood.
No matter what your experience, a counselor or certified therapist can help you discover issues surrounding your reproductive mental wellness, and put you on a path to self-empowerment. The therapists at Luna Counseling Center use a specialized approach to reproductive issues no matter what you are going through. You can find balance and support during this trying time in your life.
