Post-natal

Having a baby is much more than a physical experience. It is the beginning of a parenting role that will continue for a lifetime. A new little person has entered your life. Things will never be quite the same.
 
Remember, you are not only adjusting to a new 24-hour-a-day job as a parent and changing a relationship with your partner, but you are also recovering from giving birth. These anxious feelings usually subside over several weeks, especially with understanding and support from your partner and friends, and as you watch your baby grow and develop.  Should these symptoms persist please do get intact with us
