The process of conceiving can sometimes bring with it varying levels of social, emotional, physical and relationship stress. This stress may affect many aspects of your life including your ability to become pregnant. Fertility coaching and counselling can help you manage these stresses as well as help you to sort through the choices and options available to you on your journey to becoming parents or expanding your family.
Grief & Loss Counselling
Losing someone, something, a baby, a pregnancy – is very painful. Healing from loss is a highly personal and individual process and experience. The WOMB’s coaches and counsellors can help you navigate these stages of grief to help you heal.
Postpartum Depression, Anxiety and other Mood Disorders
The WOMB understands that bringing a new baby into the family can be challenging no matter how much you have planned, anticipated or love your child. If these feelings of “baby blues” intensify or don’t go away after a few weeks you may be experiencing a Perinatal Mood or Anxiety Disorder. PMAD can interfere with your ability to take care of your child and yourself so getting the support and counselling from a therapist experienced in PMADs right away is important in returning to a healthier you and a more positive parenting experience.
