Stephanie Miranda LMHC, CAGS
Trying to become pregnant, or going through a fertility journey can impact overall health, triggering anxiety, depression, stress and grief. It is estimated that 1 in 8 couples are impacted by infertility in the U.S. Supporting perinatal mental health starts during the TTC phase, through pregnancy and up to the first year postpartum. Post- partum does not end at the "6 week check- up". If you are considering receiving support from a counselor that understands perinatal mental health, infertility treatments, and pregnancy- related/ risk issues, please reach out at any point for a consultation.
