Birth Narratives offers specialized counselling services for: birth trauma, birth stress, prenatal and postpartum depression & anxiety.
YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
I also offer general counselling suited to your needs from preconception through parenthood (fertility, parenting support, and more). I am an EMDR therapist, have a Master’s degree in Social Work, and am registered with the Alberta College of Social Workers.
The journey of pregnancy, birth and parenthood may be more difficult than you anticipated. Many parents struggle in pregnancy or after the birth of their baby with (some examples): birth trauma, overwhelm, intrusive thoughts, anxiety, adjustment or prenatal/ postpartum depression. Counselling has been shown to be very effective for perinatal mood concerns and birth trauma.
YOU CAN DO THIS.
Birth trauma and/or concerns with your mood can be experienced by anyone in pregnancy or after childbirth. If you are worried about yourself or someone you know, contact me for support or more information.
IT IS OKAY TO ASK FOR HELP.
“Thank you so much for the support you gave me through one of the toughest periods of my life. I cannot thank you enough for not only giving me the tools I needed to navigate through this time, but also for being so compassionate and empathetic. I have been doing so much better. I honestly can’t think of where I would be today if I hadn’t reached out to you.”
I work at the Honeycomb Midwifery Clinic in NW Calgary. I can offer services in person, over the phone, online or in the comfort of your own home. Contact Shannon Kane at email@example.com or 403-880-2367.
