"This was supposed to be the happiest time of my life"
I hear this a lot from women just like you. Please know your struggles don't have to be a permanent fixture in your life though.
Friends and family don't seem to get it when you talk to them about that difficult diagnosis or decision regarding you or your baby's health. They're unsure what to say or how to help you maneuver this troubling time in your life. However, speaking with a therapist that is specially trained in Maternal Mental Health can be a great tool for finding the comfort, support, and relief you need when navigating the emotional difficulties of the process of getting to, and through, motherhood.
Unfortunately, our culture tends to take a dismissive attitude toward women when reproductive challenges arise in their life. At Lullaby Hopes Counseling Services, we embrace women and couples experiencing these challenges and provide a comfortable atmosphere and safe space which allows for healing from the stress, anxiety, and depression related to:
Struggling with the stress, anger, and hopelessness of infertility can be emotionally consuming.
Navigating a difficult pregnancy and tough decisions can be physically and mentally exhausting.
The loss of a child no matter the age or gestation can be devastating and the grief overwhelming.
The postpartum period can bring distressing and scary emotions, anxiety, and depression.
Overwhelming thoughts and anxiety after a traumatic birth can make bonding with your baby difficult.
The painful decision to end a wanted pregnancy can bring feelings of guilt or shame that can’t be shared with friends or family.
The many challenges of parenthood can leave you feeling exhausted and isolated.
Getting pregnant when you aren’t ready can cause mixed emotions such as shame, anxiety, and anticipation.
These reproductive challenges can invade every inch of a couple’s life and breed negativity, anger, guilt, sorrow, and shame.
They rob your marriage of connection, intimacy, patience, happiness, and hope.
They make you question yourself, along with your strengths and your body’s abilities.
They can cause you question your faith in God and His abilities too.
Reproductive mental health issues affect almost all women and the level of impact on daily life can vary greatly for each person. Some might experience overt signs of depression and anxiety due to hormonal and lifestyle changes of puberty, pregnancy, or menopause. Others might struggle with feeling overwhelmed by the challenges of infertility or parenthood.
If you’ve experienced any of the above, you’re in the right place!
I want to help you get all the good stuff back.
I want you to feel happy and whole again.
I want your hope restored and your faith to be unshakable.
I want you to have an amazing marriage where you enjoy each other again.
I want you to feel heard and to give you a safe space to feel ALL your feelings (yes, even the really tough and scary ones).
I have the experience to help you achieve all of these things and more. I'm confident that together we can work to help equip you with the necessary tools to help you face and overcome these challenges.
"Weeping may last for the night, but a shout of joy comes in the morning."
I understand no two individuals are the same, and I tailor our sessions together to address challenges unique to you. We will work together to understand the root cause of your struggles and address those issues with long-lasting strategies, helping you get closer to the life you've always wanted (before those pesky reproductive challenges took over).
