What is a Psychologist and how do they help Parents, Babies and Children?
Psychologists work with the mental and emotional well being of infants, children, parents, couples and families.
A psychologist may assist parents with babies in various ways:
Preparation for becoming a parent or giving birth
Parental mental health: stress management, difficulties with adjustment, loss and bereavement, trauma, anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties and other concerns
Infant mental health: eating, sleeping and elimination difficulties (these sometimes have a psychological component and may not just be medical), developmental difficulties, problems with adjustment, loss and bereavement, trauma, aggression, relationship problems and other concerns
