At Push Markham, we understand the transformative journey of parenthood. Our psychotherapy services are finely tuned to support individuals and couples through every step, with a special focus on maternal mental health, partner involvement, and preparation for pregnancy, birth, and postpartum.

The Importance of Preventative Care

Taking proactive steps to prioritize your emotional well-being is key to supporting maternal and partner mental health. By investing in preventative care, you can create a strong foundation for a positive pregnancy and postpartum experience. We encourage you to join us for an education session where our compassionate team can provide you with valuable insights and practical strategies to nurture your mental health throughout this journey.

What to Expect and Look Out For

As you navigate the prenatal and postpartum periods, it’s natural to experience a range of emotions. However, it’s important to be mindful of any persistent feelings of sadness, worry, or difficulty coping. Our team is here to help you recognize and address these emotions with compassion and understanding. Remember, seeking support is a brave step towards prioritizing your well-being.

Understanding Baby Blues and Postpartum Depression

It’s common for new parents to experience what is often referred to as “baby blues” in the days following childbirth. These feelings of mood swings and vulnerability usually resolve on their own. However, if these feelings persist and intensify, it could be a sign of postpartum depression. We want you to know that you’re not alone, and our therapists are here to provide you and your partner with the support and guidance you need during this challenging time.

Impact of Maternal Mental Health on Baby’s Growth and Development

Research has shown that the mental health of the mother directly influences the well-being of the baby. By prioritizing your own mental health, you’re also nurturing the healthy development of your little one. Our gentle approach focuses on providing you with the tools and resources to create a loving and supportive environment for your baby to thrive.

Get Educated and Get Support

Join us for an education session where you can learn more about maternal and partner mental health, as well as other important aspects of pregnancy and early parenthood. Our team is dedicated to empowering you with knowledge and support every step of the way. Remember, reaching out for help is a courageous act of self-care, and we’re here to walk alongside you on this beautiful journey to parenthood.
