Perinatal work will usually start by working with the identified guest – the one who is struggling with the various issues indicated above. Partners will eventually be encouraged to attend, so as to provide education, and ensure that support is established at home. Advocacy and sharing of resources – such as support groups or bibliotherapy – will be provided throughout sessions.
Rest assured that you will be treated with confidentiality, dignity and respect, while your therapist provides you with empathy, education, skills, and resources to get you and your family through this challenging transition. We are happy to work alongside your other health care providers such as OBGYNS, Midwives, Doulas, Fertility Clinics or any other provider you have on your team.
Perinatal work starts at home. We at WCC start with our own team and offer support to our staff who also experience this life transition in their families. We are proud to live our values by caring for one another and encourage other places of business to do the same.
