Let's talk about sex, baby
Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders or PMADs encompass the full spectrum of conditions that pregnant and postpartum women can develop. PMADs often present in a number of ways depending on the predominating set of symptoms and include a range of emotional disorders, such as, major depression, generalized anxiety, OCD, panic disorder, and PTSD.
There are many reasons PMADs occur, and often are caused by changes in biology, physiology, lack of sleep, transition in identity and expectations of parenthood versus the reality of a new baby.
You may feel desperately alone and deeply ashamed if you are experiencing PMAD symptoms, especially ones that are less talked about like rage or intrusive thoughts. While the onset of these symptoms may be gradual or sudden, they should not be ignored.
Symptoms left untreated can cause suffering for many months or years. Therapeutic treatment and care can prevent a worsening of symptoms and there is hope for healing. You can fully recover.
adjusting to a new role and identity
finding hope through grief
One of the dreams many couples have is to become parents together. For one in eight couples, however, getting or staying pregnant will be filled with challenges. Few couples expect to experience infertility or pregnancy loss, yet these experiences can greatly strain a couple’s relationship.
Partners may also be overwhelmed with grief and feelings of guilt, anger, or hopelessness. In moments like this, it is not unusual for communication and intimacy to break down. This on top of external issues that may not be addressed, like differing family dynamics, mental health issues and unexpected life events can feel overwhelming.
Couples counseling gives partners the opportunity to improve communication, strengthen intimacy, deal effectively with conflict and navigate decisions. It is important to be each other’s best friend. A strong foundation of friendship protects your relationship from potential future issues of disconnecting from each other, loneliness or isolation.
With couples counseling, you and your partner will be able to identify present issues in your relationship and discover healthy, productive methods of communication and dealing with them in order to help your relationship flourish.
buidling lasting love and intimacy
recovery from trauma
Like many people, you want to parent. You assumed conceiving and having a baby would be a natural, problem-free process. But this hasn’t been your experience. Receiving an infertility diagnosis or realizing that getting pregnant will be difficult for you can be extremely stressful. You may feel that your sense of identity and life dreams have been taken away from you.
It’s natural to have high levels of stress or anxiety as you face complicated medical procedures, difficult decisions, and the uncertainty of infertility treatments. Feelings of grief and depression from repeated fertility trials and cycles of hope and disappointment are normal.
