Centre for Perinatal Psychology

Supports parents and infants with planning, pregnancy, postpartum and parenting.

The Centre for Perinatal Psychology is committed to strengthening relationships and facilitating joyful and confident parenting during the perinatal period.

We are Australia’s only national group of psychologists dedicated to mothers, fathers, infants, couples and families during the perinatal period, which covers:

  • Planning
  • Pregnancy
  • Postpartum
  • Parenting

We see people when they are thinking about conception right through to three years postpartum, and we understand the difficulties you face.

We understand the desperate longing for a baby when it is difficult to conceive; we understand the painful and unbearable loss of a baby at any stage of pregnancy or postpartum; we understand the depths of despair that accompanies antenatal and postnatal depression; and the agitation and preoccupation of perinatal anxiety.
