Fertility & mental health

 
 

Studies have found that up to 1 in 5 women may experience postnatal depression and that postnatal depression can make the early days very tough for mother, baby and the whole family. Additionally, childbirth and infertility have been found to impact on mental health and well being for a number of reasons. Our clinical psychologists are experienced in providing treatment to help women who are experiencing problems as a result of their fertility or infertility.

To assist you, we offer tailored psychotherapy and counselling options for women, men and couples who may be experiencing problems related to:

  1. Postnatal depression

  2. Fertility & Infertility

  3. Conception

  4. Pregnancy

  5. Birth Complications

  6. IVF

  7. Surrogacy

Reproductive Health

Surrogacy Assessments

Surrogacy laws have significantly changed with the introduction of new legislation in many States. As all surrogacy arrangements must be approved by an independent body (e.g., the Patient Review Panel in Victoria), couples wanting to submit an application for surrogacy must undertake an Independent Psychological Assessment.

Our psychologists are experienced in these assessments and can provide you with the appropriate reports needed by your chosen IVF clinic. We will assist you through the process and you can be assured that the process will help you decide what’s best for all parties and assist you in meeting the criteria for all relevant legislative bodies overseeing the surrogacy application.
