Birth and Postpartum can be very rewarding times in a woman’s life - but they can also be challenging! Heidi McBain is a professional counselor offering services for pregnant and postpartum mothers - and women in all stages of life. She is joining us today to tell us a little more about herself and her practice, and how her passion for maternal health provides an amazing resource in the surrounding areas of the Dallas - Fort Worth Metroplex.
Tell us a bit about yourself, Heidi!
I’ve been married for 16 years, and we have two school-aged kids and a chocolate Labrador Retriever (my running buddy!).
Where are you from?
I’ve lived in Illinois, Maryland, New Mexico, Texas and California, as well as overseas in France and Peru. My family currently lives in Flower Mound, Texas.
Where are you practicing now?
My online video counseling private practice is based out of Flower Mound, Texas. However, because I’m a Texas Licensed Professional Counselor and Texas Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I’m able to see clients throughout the entire state of Texas.
What services do you offer?
I only see women in my private practice, and specialize in Maternal Mental Health, Postpartum Anxiety/Depression and Grief and Loss.
What sparked your interest in serving expecting and postpartum mothers?
I’m a mom of two, and it wasn’t an easy road for us. Months and months of trying to get pregnant, a late miscarriage between our kids, which led to needing my own grief support from a therapist, as well as support when I was pregnant again. I had A LOT of anxiety with that pregnancy, something that is very normal after a pregnancy loss, but not often talked about openly. My own journey led me to Postpartum Support International (PSI). I have advanced training in Perinatal Mood Disorders through PSI, so I can best help and support other moms through their own difficult times.
Who can benefit from your services?
Women who are currently experiencing a major life change/life transition, moms at any stage of motherhood, women who are experience grief and loss in their life, and pregnant/new moms who are struggling with anxiety and/or depression.
