The journey of pregnancy brings specific challenges. Someone who is pregnant goes through substantial physical changes, changes in hormonal levels, and the preparation for becoming a parent.
Counseling interventions related to pregnancy or prenatal challenges are tailored specifically to each individual. Therapists look for signs or concerns related to anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues, which can be detrimental to the development of the pregnancy.
Specific interventions for pregnancy and prenatal concerns may involve processing emotions related to the pregnancy, understanding unhelpful thought patterns, and developing coping skills to alleviate stress and difficult emotions.
