Find Support in Motherhood
Many new and expecting moms find themselves feeling overwhelmed as they enter motherhood. Although this time is joyful, it is also filled with uncertainty and overwhelming change. At Rooted Thistle Counselling we understand motherhood is both beautiful and difficult. We offer tailored support for new and expecting moms, as well as those who are trying to conceive.
Pregnancy & Postpartum
A Transformative Phase:
When a woman becomes a mom they go through psychological, emotional, and physical changes. This important transitional period is referred to as matrescence. Matrescence often feels messy and confusing. Suddenly you are tasked with caring for another human being, while putting your own needs to the side. Every aspect of your life has changed and you are no longer the person you used to be.
At Rooted Thistle Counselling, we believe that every mom deserves support and care during this special time. Matrescence is a right of passage, one we believe is full of challenge, beauty, and potential. Our team of trained perinatal therapists understand firsthand the highs and lows of pregnancy and postpartum. We are here to walk alongside you as you rediscover yourself.
The postpartum period can be overwhelming as you try to adjust to life with a child. Our postpartum care focuses on exploring all aspects of this transition, developing coping strategies, and growing your support network. Some new moms may experience symptoms of Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders, such as Postpartum Depression and Postpartum Anxiety. Our therapists have specialized training in these areas and can support you in your healing journey.
