Workshops: Antenatal Mental Health

Antenatal Mental Health; Using Psychological Skills to Help Families in the prenatal period

Antenatal Anxiety and Depression is on the increase, and fear is an increasingly important psychological issue in the perinatal period. We will explore the phenomenon of fear, anxiety, depression, ocd, tokophobia and more, during pregnancy.  We will explore the impact this can have on the family, and help you be more confident and aware when talking to families. We will show you simple and effective techniques for helping a woman reduce her fear, both antenatally and during labour.  Learn how to manage your own fears too with on the spot relaxation and hypnotic techniques.
