Referring your client


As a referrer, it is important to know that Psyche en Zwangerschap is a knowledge, information and referral center for psychologists who focus on the care of pregnant and recently given women and of women with mental disorders during a fertility process.

The GZ psychologists who are affiliated with us have knowledge of and affinity with this target group and are also EMDR therapists.


Training for professionals


When someone is pregnant and gives birth, it is a special period that usually comes with feelings of happiness and joy.

But it is also a period in which psychological complaints can occur. Research shows that 1 in 6 women have psychological complaints during or just after giving birth. Only a fraction of them seek help.

As a result, Merith Cohen de Lara – founder of Psyche en Zwangerschap – has developed a number of courses.
