Perinatal Counselling

imagesThe perinatal period from pregnancy to the first years after giving birth, brings great change in a woman's life and in her family's life.

Mothers to be experience a variety of emotions during this time, from great pleasure and excitement about the baby, worries about the future, concerns about being a parent and stress about finances, responsibilities and coping.

There are many stereotypes and pressures on mothers so it can be useful to talk with someone confidentially without fear of being judged.
