Services for New & Expecting Parents: Whether you are pregnant or in the first days/weeks/months after welcoming a child, it can be an emotional and isolating time. Getting support during this period is vital when you are feeling overwhelmed. Most women and partners experience mood changes at some point during the first postpartum year, and more significant perinatal mood and anxiety disorders affect 15-20% of women. I understand these concerns, have training in perinatal mood disorders, and welcome the opportunity to help you through them.
Some examples of topics you might seek help for:
Concerns about becoming a parent
Postpartum blues, depression or anxiety
Sibling adjustment to a new baby
Spousal conflict or tension
Difficulty with separation
Concerns about development
Additionally, through Hoffman & Soffer Parenting Consultants, www.medpsychparenting.com, a range of unique parent coaching services is offered in collaboration with Judith Hoffman, M.D., Board Certified Pediatrician.
