Anyone is susceptible to pre- and post-partum depression, even if you’ve never experienced depression before. We are here to help you and your baby.
At Atkinson Family Practice, we believe it is important to support women throughout pregnancy and postpartum experiences. Having a baby is a major life transition, and we want to offer you an opportunity to discuss how you are doing emotionally, screen for postpartum depression and to help with issues related to parenting, relationships, intimacy, body image and changes in work, finances and identity.
In that light, we recommend that any Atkinson Family Practice patient who is expecting a baby meet with Chaia Wolf for a pregnancy and postpartum visit (often around 4-5 weeks postpartum). A major part of Chaia’s Women’s Holistic Health Program is supporting women who are pre- or post-partum. She’s trained in Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, EMDR, Mindfulness, Clinical Hypnosis, and various meditation techniques. Other aspects of this group include breast/gynecologic/cancer support, relationship and parenting support, and stress management. Chaia also sees patients one-on-one for therapy, and we encourage all expectant parents to set up an appointment with her.
Please call: Chaia Wolf, MSW, LICSW 253-4094 to schedule an appointment!
Yes! Please feel free to bring your baby along!
