In Home Therapy
Linda Zaffram’s in home therapy will focus on women’s issues to include:
- Pre-natal and post-partum depression
- Anxiety and PTSD
- Trauma affecting pregnancy or parenting
Areas of specialty include neglect, emotional, physical & sexual abuse and how it impacts women’s birth process, birth choices, breastfeeding, post-partum body and motherhood acceptance along with parenting choices. Issues revolving around traumatic births including unexpected birth outcomes, NICU births and cesarean births.
Linda will provide a kind, loving and confidential environment where you can explore your hopes and fears regarding pre and post childbirth and feelings associated with parenthood. Feelings of anger, sadness, grief, anxiety, being overwhelmed can all be a part of the journey into parenthood. Exploring our past can help us better understand these feelings and begin to heal from childhood hurts. No family history or birth is the same and each family deserves positive regard and support in their decisions regarding birth before, during and after.
For beautiful eyes, Look for the good in others;
For beautiful lips speak only words of kindness;
And for poise, Walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.
Healing From Birth Group
Did you have an unexpected birth outcome, a baby that was in the NICU or have grief issues associated with the birth of your child?

…Birth is a rite of passage of women. Their journey should be honored, their rights should be fiercely protected, and their stories should be shared.
Miscarriage Support Group
This is a free miscarriage support group for families, offered through the MISS Foundation, seeking support after the loss of a baby in early pregnancy. This includes all losses in the first trimester of pregnancy.
Some women may feel this group will be a good fit for them even if their loss extends past the first 12 weeks– this is a very personal decision. All are also welcome to attend the other MISS Foundation groups as well.
