Reproductive Mental Health


Feeling frustrated, hopeless, or devastated because of fertility, birth trauma, or postpartum difficulties? Dr. Monica Landolt White can help.


Find hope again.
Get in touch today.



One of my specialties and passions is walking along side people on their journey into parenthood.  If you are struggling with fertility, birth trauma, or perinatal mood disorders, I can help.


Fertility

It wasn’t supposed to be this hard.  People get pregnant by accident all the time.  You’re not sure how many disappointments you can take before you break down.  This is so unfair.  Another round of IVF/IUF, another negative pregnancy test, another devastating loss.

If this is your story, I know how you’re feeling, and I know that therapy can help navigate the pain, hopelessness, and complicated experiences that come with fertility issues.  If you would like to work with a therapist who truly understands the emotional roller-coaster of hope and heartbreak, reach out to schedule today.

Listen to Dr. Monica Landolt White speak about the difficulty, pain, and shame of infertility on MomEnough, the popular show hosted by Marti & Erin Erickson.

 


Birth Trauma

Things didn’t go as you planned.  Maybe you or your baby were fighting for your life, or maybe the medical personnel attending to you were dismissive, rude, or aggressive.  Maybe it was an emergency c-section, or maybe labor happened too quickly for you to get to the birth center.  Whatever your story, you are feeling angry, sad, disappointed, and ashamed.  And maybe even a little silly for feeling those things.

Birth trauma is real trauma, and real trauma takes a toll.   Your birth trauma will always be a part of your story, but it doesn’t have to be a source of despair.  When you’re ready, I will help you move to a place of healing, recovery, and reconnection. 


Postpartum/Perinatal Mood Disorders

You’re overcome with shame, having scary thoughts, and feeling miserable and disconnected from your baby.  You wish someone had told you things would be this hard, but most of all you just wish it would stop.

Dealing with postpartum anxiety and depression is the hardest challenge a lot of new parents face.  You don’t have to do it alone.  I have extensive training and experience in helping parents, partners, and families recover and thrive in the face of postpartum difficulties.  If you’re ready to reclaim yourself from the darkness, call me today.
