Parenting under pressure

Thinking about becoming a parent can be a very exciting, but daunting time in any individual’s life.

Common worries may include having difficulties conceiving or for others, depending on their own childhood experiences, there may be fears about not being a ‘good enough’ parent. Yet others may already be aware of the obstacles to getting and staying pregnant owing to a history of perinatal loss, or long term medical issues. For same sex couples, there may be concerns about creating supportive networks in which to raise a child, or indeed how to negotiate the legal and medical processes around becoming parents.

Commonly individuals and couples may seek psychological support for a wide range of issues at this time including
