Post Pregnancy Support

Whether you are parenting alone, with a partner, or have the support of family members, being a parent can be challenging and you may find it difficult to cope.

  • If you are feeling isolated or alone as you adjust to parenthood…
  • If you are finding life with your baby or toddler extremely hard and need some support…
  • If you are a new mother coping on your own and trying to juggle work and childcare…
  • If you are returning to work…
  • If you wish to return to education…
  • If you would like help and encouragement with the practical or emotional elements of parenting…

…We can help!


Discovering that somebody is pregnant with your baby can be very shocking and overwhelming. Men can feel isolated and helpless and sometimes it might seem that your feelings have been forgotten. Often your need for support may not be as apparent, Anew recognises that men can be affected too. Coming to talk about your feelings to a counsellor who is warm, friendly and non-judgemental can help you to feel less alone and make it easier for you to work through this part of your life. Men are very welcome to avail of ANEW’s free, confidential and non-directive counselling.

Grandparents and other Family Members

An unplanned pregnancy in a family can be an emotional and difficult time for other family members too. Anew offers pregnancy counselling to any family members who are affected and feel they need support. Grandparents can experience their own fears and anxieties about the future of their daughters or sons and it may be easier to talk to someone outside their immediate family.

Anew counsellors will listen and help you come to terms with your feelings and how you can support your daughter or son as you all work through this.
