Home-based maternal wellness
Counseling can be helpful at any stage of motherhood. The following modalities of treatment are effective for a wide range of prenatal and postpartum issues, including perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, birth preparation or processing a traumatic labor and delivery, relationship building with baby/partner, or general mental health challenges that come on during motherhood and cause feelings of overwhelm.
Self Compassion and Mindfulness-based Therapy: develop skills to be less judgmental towards ourselves and learn to live more in the present rather than dwelling in the past or future.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy: learn skills to challenge and change negative thinking patterns to promote positive feelings and behavioral changes.
EMDR Therapy: reprocess past memories, birth trauma, or difficult experiences contributing to today’s problems.
Postpartum doesn’t magically end at 6 weeks. It doesn’t even end at 6 months. We must look at the postpartum period as an entire year filled with adjustment, identity transformation, and complex change. No matter what stage of the postpartum experience you’re in, emotional and mental health support is so valuable in setting you up for success and gently easing you into the transition to motherhood (or motherhood again).
Weekly and biweekly sessions available. Choose what’s best for you and sign up!
Perhaps the idea of signing up for ongoing therapy is overwhelming, or maybe you need a bit of extra help as you adjust to a new role. Try signing up for a one-time wellness drop-in for emotional support, education, and guidance in creating a plan for coping and moving forward.
Sign up yourself or gift a wellness drop-in to a friend who might be struggling. Support from a trained mental health therapist is often more valuable than a traditional gift from a baby registry!
With the help of narrative therapy techniques, release rituals, and visualization exercises, you can give meaning to your unique experiences and embrace your birth story with more confinece.
The MotherTogether group is a safe and supportive space for mothers to explore the realities of motherhood. Regardless of whether you’re currently pregnant, navigating the postpartum period, or preparing to become a mother again, you’ll gain valuable skills that can help you build resilience, boost confidence, and feel more empowered in your parenting journey.
Our focus is on addressing the mental load of motherhood, practicing self-care, and redefining what success means for us as mothers.
“Blossom Moms” will receive 1-on-1 peer support* during the pregnancy and/or postpartum period from trained “Mentor Mom” volunteers. Peer support includes listening, understanding, empathy, companionship and friendship.
Blossom will match a Mentor Mom with a Blossom Mom based on their responses to questionnaires. They will connect for:
