Being a parent can be a rewarding and an exciting time, however, the unexpected feelings and challenges that can arise are often left unspoken. Support in the right place can lead to transformations for the parent, child and family.

  • Attachment difficulties

  • Maternal obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Perinatal loss
  • Post-partum psychosis
