Counseling & Psychotherapy

Chico, CA

Pregnancy is a time of transition: To grow this new being the body goes through profound hormonal, emotional and physical changes. Awe at the miracle going on within can be offset by worry, sadness, or fear. Depression and anxiety are not only a postpartum issue but arise in pregnancy as well. Some normal changes during and after pregnancy cause symptoms similar to those of depression. However, if you have any of the following symptoms for more than 2 weeks, it is important to consult with a professional.

Seeking psychotherapy at this time can mean less complications during birth and delivery and decreased postpartum emotional reactions.
