Why the postpartum period is important to us:

Therapists at Amanda Atkins Counseling have received training in treating pregnancy and postpartum issues and many of us are mothers ourselves. 1 in 7 moms suffer from postpartum depression as well as 1 in 10 dads. Postpartum depression and anxiety is highly treatable by therapy and there is no need to suffer alone.
