The journey to becoming a parent can sometimes feel like an emotional rollercoaster. When we enter this phase in our lives, the only thing that is absolutely certain is that having a baby changes everything, and life will never be the same again.
We talk about the birth of a mother and the birth of a father. Whilst being a parent is the real you, it is a part of you that never existed before. It is a new role requiring new skills and a completely new set of rules.
It is important that you have the right support available to enable a smooth transition to parenthood so that you can enjoy the experience with your partner, any older children and your new baby.
For some women and men, they may benefit from professional help to adjust to their new lives as a mum and dad. If you find you are feeling low for long periods, unable to switch your worried mind off or struggling with the unhelpful thoughts and feelings, knowing there is help available should you need it and wish to access it is important. Talking to someone impartial to your family situation can be incredibly liberating. Reaching out for help shows tremendous strength, it shows you have insight into your situation and want to move forward.
At easibirthing we are specialists in support in the post natal period, as well as fertility, pregnancy and birth. We offer counseling, psychotherapy and hypnotherapy towards empowering our clients to recognise and overcome unhelpful thoughts, and to gain a sense of control in their lives.
Your therapist will enable you to reassess your identity as an individual and as a couple, your life's goals and what your priorities are.
