REPROSYCH

 

Our own thoughts about having children begin early in life, often in childhood, where we think about what our own family will be like when we grow up. Will we have children? How many? Boys or girls? Will they be smart? Athletic? Have a good sense of humor? These hopes, dreams, and expectations about beginning a family make up Our Reproductive Story.

 

For some of us, Our Reproductive Story does not unfold in the way we hoped it would or think that it should. Sometimes, it is harder than we thought it would be to get pregnant, often due to conditions such as endometriosis or PCOS. Sometimes, miscarriages occur. And for some of us, pregnancy can be quite complicated – often when we did not expect that it would be. When this happens, it often feels emotionally like a great loss – a loss that can feel overwhelming at times.  

ReproPsych is a multi-faceted service for people experiencing reproductive concerns –  disruptions to Our Reproductive Story. The emotional issues that result when Our Reproductive Story goes awry are largely unaddressed by today’s healthcare system. We all know that the doctors and nurses helping you with your physical health concerns often do not have time or expertise to help you with your emotional health concerns. 

For this reason, ReproPsych exists to provide you with psychological counseling, supportive services, and psychoeducation associated with pregnancy-related issues.  We specialize in the following topics:

 

  • Infertility

  • Miscarriage

  • Stillbirth

  • Premature birth

  • Surrogacy and donor technology

  • Multiple and complicated births

  • Adoption

  • Postpartum depression

  • Mood changes during or after pregnancy

 

Our counsellors at ReproPsych are mental health providers who are expertly trained not only to compassionately understand, but also to provide effective treatment, for individuals and families who are struggling with fertility and pregnancy issues.  We are honored to join you in the journey of your Reproductive Story!
