Transition to Parenthood

With so many changes in the transition to parenthood, it can be hard to know whether your feelings are ‘normal’. It takes time to adjust to the transition for yourself and your family, you need time to feel comfortable and find your way in parenting.

You may be feeling stressed, overwhelmed, anxious or depressed or you may simply need some support as you adjust to parenthood. Our Mornington Peninsula and online psychologists are committed to exploring ways to facilitate joyful, confident parenting and a secure, loving bond between parents and infants.

Struggling to get out of the house, rest assured you can access one of our online therapists whenever you need.

Bonding with your Baby

Many mums and dads wish to parent differently to how they were raised. There may be things about your upbringing that you want to bring forward into your own parenting, and aspects that you don’t.

We can explore these themes with you as you transition into being the parent you want to be. You may want to see one of our Mornington Psychologists for individual face to face or online therapy or join our Circle of Security group.

Parents are welcome to and encouraged to bring their baby to face to face and online therapy appointments at Stirling Psychology.

Relationships after having a baby

The transition to parenthood puts enormous pressure on a relationship. As psychologists, we know that 67% of couples experience a significant drop in relationship satisfaction after the birth of a child. You may find yourself becoming more irritable or notice that you are increasingly criticising your partner. You may be struggling to find time to spend together, you might feel disconnected or you may be having difficulties with intimacy.

You may find yourselves fighting over things that were never an issue before - arguing over money, feeling unsupported and not heard, or both feeling you don’t get enough time on your own. You might want to attend an online relationship course or workship such as Bringing Baby Home to develop your skills; or re-prioritise your relationship with a luxury couples retreat; or perhaps regular online couples therapy appointments with a Mornington psychologist might be what you need to improve communication and build connection.

We offer a range of relationship solutions including online relationship courses to meet your couple needs at Stirling Relationships.
