Counselling for New Parents
For new parents, it is a huge adjustment to parenthood. It can be tough to feel like you are having a harder time than others adjusting. It makes it more difficult if your start to parenthood is complicated with loss, prematurity, medical complications or a traumatic birth.
For some parents, exercise, a healthy diet, and receiving help and support from family and friends are sufficient enough to get through the initial adjustment period. For others, talking to a therapist who specializes in dealing with new parenthood issues can be comforting, relieving, and enlightening. It can help you feel less alone, and to feel understood and heard.
There are so many factors that can affect your situation, including your own medical situation, your support system, and your own history. These factors can make a big difference in how you respond to or cope with parenting challenges, including huge ones like your child being ill or premature.
