Online Psychologists: Pregnancy Support


"We are always in a perpetual state of being created and creating ourselves.”

DANIEL J SIEGEL

Psychologists providing Immediate Online Antenatal Support  


Our online & Mornington perinatal psychologists are available to support your mental health and wellbeing during pregnancy.

The first 1000 days (conception to 2 yrs) of baby's life are understood to be the most important aspect of your child's development, laying the foundation for your child's future. Stirling Psychology recognises this important transition and this is why as a psychology and wellness practice we choose to focus on working with families during the perinatal period. Our warm and caring online & Mornington psychologists are here to support you in all of your health and wellbeing needs throughout your pregnancy and as you transition into becoming a new parent.

Our couples therapists are passionate about preparing couples for the transition to parenthood and strengthening their relationship in preparing for the many changes and challenges that lie ahead.

We offer individual and couples therapy online and from our Mornington psychology practice. As well as a range of programs, workshops, and retreats aimed at supporting you during your pregnancy and as you and your family transition into parenthood (whether that be for the first or fifth time).

Mental Health in Pregnancy


Pregnancy can be both exciting and terrifying. You may have experienced a difficult journey to get pregnant. Your pregnancy news may have been unexpected. For some men and women depression or anxiety may re-emerge in pregnancy, or perhaps you are pregnant and experiencing antenatal depression or anxiety for the first time.

You may be looking for online therapy or want to see one of our Mornington psychologists to develop coping strategies to reduce the impact of stress or anxiety during your pregnancy. You may want to see a perinatal psychologist as part of a preventative approach. You may want to see a couples therapist to learn strategies to strengthen your relationship or develop coping skills to reduce the potential impact of postnatal depression or postnatal anxiety.

Preparing for the Transition to Parenthood


We can’t ever know exactly what to expect when our baby is born. Every birth experience is different and your baby will bring their own temperament and set of needs. It’s impossible to know how you will cope but our online & Mornington psychologists can help you prepare for the uncertainty of parenthood so that you have the best chance to transition as smoothly as possible.

You might be worried about developing postnatal depression or postnatal anxiety and may want to take a preventative approach or you may want to better manage stress during your pregnancy. You may want to work with one of our highly skilled and experienced psychologists online or at our Mornington Psychology Practice to assist in preparing for the transition to parenthood. Or you might want to attend a Circle of Security workshop to prepare for the transition to parenthood.
