As a parent you may experience uncertainty, worry, anxiety or depressive symptoms during or after the baby is born. The infant may cry a lot or be restless or difficult to calm down or have challenges with sleeping and eating.
Therapeutic work for families with infants supports the interaction between the parent and the baby and the baby's development. Parents have the opportunity to work on their parenting skills, as well as their relationship with the infant, their partner and other loved ones.
Our forms of work include meetings with a parent and a baby as well as couple, family and group meetings. If necessary, we can make home visits.
We offer therapeutic work for families with infants if the support provided by family members or maternity and child health clinics and other basic services is not enough.
