Treatment concept

Having a child, being pregnant, giving birth, are life stages that raise specific questions and feelings. Feelings of joy, but sometimes also uncertainty, fear or gloom. It is normal that you have to get used to the new situation. However, if you feel that you are having problems, or if the feelings or thoughts are adversely affecting daily life, it is wise to seek help.

Psyche en Zwangerschap provides generalistic mental healthcare (GB GGZ) to pregnant and recently given women with psychological problems and to women with psychological complaints during a fertility process. The care is provided by GZ psychologists. All psychologists work independently and have their own practice. On this website we bundle the information about our joint specialization.

We try to see you as soon as possible, if necessary also (just) after the delivery. This prevents the complaints from getting worse.
