You are pregnant.
How do you feel about it?


 
 
Pregnancy can be an exciting time; however, it can also be a moment in life that brings stress, fear, challenges and anticipation for the big day. There are many milestones, tests, and symptoms that can make your journey difficult. We can explore all the challenges as well as any difficult decisions you may be facing with pregnancy, birth or after.

BIRTH

Newborn

What is your birth story?



 
Everyone who has birthed, adopted, or lost a child has a birth story. Sometimes everything goes according to plan but many times it does not. Taking time to process your birth story can help with releasing the pain, preparing for future births and help you in your current parenting role. There is no time limit, whether you just had your baby or a long time ago.

Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is a trauma focused support therapy.
