Pregnancy Support

Pregnancy Support Therapy

Pregnancy is a significant life transition filled with both joy and unique challenges. Our pregnancy support therapy services at Behr Psychology are designed to provide comprehensive care for expecting mothers and their partners. Whether you need pregnancy physical therapy, therapy for birthing concerns, or support for perinatal depression, our team of therapists and psychologists is here to help.

Pregnancy physical therapy

Do frequent urination, heartburn, and swelling drive you insane? While you enjoy your pregnancy at times, there are other times when you can’t wait to deliver your baby and reclaim your body. During pregnancy, you may experience various physical discomforts, such as back pain, pelvic pain, swelling, nausea, fatigue, and insomnia.

Pregnancy physical therapy focuses on alleviating the physical discomforts associated with pregnancy. Our specialized therapists work with you to manage pain, improve mobility, and prepare your body for childbirth, ensuring you stay comfortable and active throughout your pregnancy.

What we offer

If you’re searching for “pregnancy physical therapy near me,” Behr Psychology offers convenient and personalized care tailored to your needs. The thought of childbirth can be overwhelming. Our therapy for birthing concerns helps you address any fears or anxieties about labor and delivery. We provide techniques and strategies through individualized sessions to help you feel more confident and prepared for the birthing process.

Perinatal depression treatment

Perinatal depression involves both prenatal and postpartum depression. This mental health condition affects many women during and after pregnancy. If you’re dealing with perinatal depression, you may feel overwhelmed by sadness, anxiety, and fatigue. Additional feelings of guilt, irritability, and difficulty concentrating only exacerbate this emotional distress, making it difficult to enjoy your pregnancy or bond with your newborn.

But you are not alone in this. Seeking support can help you navigate these emotional challenges and improve your well-being. 

Our services

At Behr Psychology, we offer specialized perinatal therapy for depression to support your mental health. Our perinatal treatment for depression is designed to help you emotionally throughout your pregnancy journey. We recognize the importance of addressing mental health concerns early and provide a safe space for you to explore your feelings and experiences. Our perinatal depression treatment includes a combination of counseling, therapeutic techniques, and coping strategies to help you navigate this challenging time.

If you are experiencing symptoms of postpartum depression or anxiety, contact us today to schedule an appointment with one of our compassionate therapists. We offer in-person consultations at our Midtown West and Upper West Side offices and online sessions for those in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Florida, South Carolina, and California.
