We recognize that the experiences of pregnancy and birth can be emotionally complicated and clients often benefit from extra support during this time. We offer clients the opportunity to do so with services that are relationally-oriented, empathic, and confidential.
Clients who may especially benefit from these short term services include those who have experienced perinatal loss, infertility, past birth trauma or other past trauma including sexual abuse, problems with body image, past history of dependency on substances, or previous difficulties including depression, OCD, or anxiety. This program also helps to find longer term referrals for ongoing emotional wellness.
We also welcome any client who simply may wish to have some extra time and space to reflect on their concerns and hopes as they journey through their pregnancy, birth and postpartum experiences. Our focus is on welcoming and “being with" all of our clients, wherever each person is.

We are lucky to have grant support for this group, so it is free of charge for our clients to participate in.
