All clients have a reproductive story – whether they have children or not, whether they want children or not, regardless of their gender or sexuality.
And while for some that story goes as imagined, many clients go through the quiet devastation of any number of unanticipated traumas.
These stressors create unique mental health challenges that are different from what therapists were trained to treat. Infertility and pregnancy loss aren’t typical grief. Birth trauma isn’t typical trauma. Perinatal mood issues aren’t just depression and anxiety.
