Pregnancy is often an exciting time, but no matter how eagerly a child’s birth is anticipated, emotions like stress and anxiety commonly occur. Pregnancy issues may be mild or serious and can affect the health of the mother and child, put strain on a relationship and lead to unpredictable life changes. Psychotherapy can help expectant moms mitigate some of this stress and express their concerns about becoming a parent. A mental health professional can provide a safe and supportive environment where soon to be mom’s can openly talk about any fears and concerns they may have.
