Perinatal & Postnatal Issues

Becoming a parent is a unique and transformative experience, yet it can also bring unexpected challenges, affecting mental health & wellbeing. Postnatal depression is a common and serious condition that can affect mothers and fathers, emerging within the first year after childbirth. At Bridges Therapy Centre, we offer specialised therapy for perinatal and postnatal issues (including perinatal OCD), designed to provide the support and tools needed to navigate this complex phase of life. Our team of psychologists are committed to helping you find your way back to emotional well-being and positive parenting.

If you or a loved one are experiencing any of the following symptoms, it may be an indication of postnatal distress:


  • Overwhelming feelings of sadness, hopelessness, or emptiness
  • Persistent anxiety or excessive worry
  • Fatigue and lack of energy, unrelated to sleep
  • Difficulty bonding with the baby
  • Changes in appetite or weight
  • Irritability or anger
  • Withdrawal from social activities and relationships
  • Trouble concentrating or making decisions
  • Thoughts of harming yourself or the baby.
