Benefits of Counselling

Research shows that mothers who have access to counselling, which allows them to process their pregnancy or birth experience and move through challenging emotions, are less likely to develop postpartum mood disorders. 
Why? Because counselling provides the opportunity for mothers to be heard, understood and validated.  This can open the space for emotions and negative thoughts to be felt and processed so they can return to their families and rediscover deeper connections with their babies and partners or spouses.
