Scary thoughts, irrational fears, worried “what if,” thinking, or imagining disturbing scenarios that play out in your mind are one of the lesser talked about downsides of motherhood.
Dads can get postpartum depression too but that’s something that’s so often left out of the conversation about parental mental health.
About The perinatal collective
Welcome! So glad you're here.
We're a team of mental health therapists across Canada with advanced education and experience in perinatal mental health, meaning you don't have to cross your fingers and hope that we understand how hard this stage can be.
We understand the nuances of the early stages of parenthood: how typical counselling strategies may not be relevant to parents with young kids, and how mental health challenges look different during this time.
From deciding to have children, to navigating your journey through fertility, pregnancy, birth, postpartum, relationship changes, parenting, career demands and beyond, parenthood can be full with challenges.
Our goal is to help you manage the peaks and valleys of the entire journey, while staying connected to yourself, and feeling whole, along the way.
