Mental Health in Pregnancy



Pregnancy can be both exciting and terrifying. You may have experienced a difficult journey to get pregnant. Your pregnancy news may have been unexpected. For some men and women depression or anxiety may re-emerge in pregnancy, or perhaps you are pregnant and experiencing antenatal depression or anxiety for the first time.

You may be looking for online therapy to develop coping strategies to reduce the impact of stress or anxiety during your pregnancy. You may want to see an online psychologist as part of preventative approach. You may want to see an online couples counsellor to learn strategies to strengthen your relationship or develop coping skills to reduce the potential impact of postnatal depression or postnatal anxiety.

Preparing for the Transition to Parenthood



We can’t ever know exactly what to expect when our baby is born. Every birth experience is different and your baby will bring their own temperament and set of needs. It’s impossible to know how you will cope but our online psychologists can help you prepare for the uncertainty of parenthood so that you have the best chance to transition as smoothly as possible.


You might be worried about developing postnatal depression or postnatal anxiety and may want to take a preventative approach or you may want to better manage stress during your pregnancy. We offer online individual counselling as well as online workshops with highly skilled and experienced psychologists to assist in preparing for the transition to parenthood.
