Therapy for Pregnancy, Perinatal, and Postpartum Issues

Pregnancy, perinatal, and postpartum issues entail any real or perceived problems or difficulties stemming from the childbirth experience. Pregnancy, perinatal, and postpartum experiences are stressful in many positive and negative ways while the physical body experiences immense stress. Situations vary but may be remedied through therapy and support. Working with a therapist who specializes in pregnancy, perinatal, and postpartum issues may help someone overcome any linked mental health challenges.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) helps people take positive action in their life. It involves learning to accept unpleasant thoughts, emotions, or experiences without viewing them as problems. ACT is often used to treat stress, anxiety, depression, and obsessive-compulsive disorder. You’ll find mental health professionals who specialize in ACT listed below.
