Pregnancy Related Counselling
WE CAN HELP YOU
Becoming pregnant is a life changing event that can affect both women and their relationships in many ways.
A pregnancy whether planned or unplanned can highlight a number of concerns including relationship issues or the capacity to be a parent.
It is not uncommon for unresolved feelings about a previous pregnancy, miscarriage, termination, stillbirth or post-natal depression to arise.
For some women, a pregnancy can be a positive life event that provides direction and purpose and they easily adjust to the idea of continuing the pregnancy.
For others, it is a time of stress and isolation leaving them feeling confused and overwhelmed. This may be a time where you need some professional support to assist you to address the issues that have arisen. You can then be supported through the process of making a decision that is best for you at this time.
If you, or someone you know is pregnant and need to talk confidentially to someone
you can call me at Becoming Connected Counselling
