Hi, I’m Narelle Horwitz, the owner of Perinatal Wellness. I am a Perinatal Psychologist, Doula and mum of three.
I've been supporting mums of the shire since 2012 through individual counselling or birth doula support. I also run online courses and programs for perinatal women Australia wide (at the time of writing this my new website is still under construction so check my facebook page for news on current courses). I love everything to do with pregnancy / birth / and the postnatal period and previously worked on an international level training birth workers across the globe.
At Perinatal Wellness I really enjoy supporting local women to find ways to enjoy the moment no matter where they are in their journey towards and through motherhood. Some of the primary reasons my clients reach out is for psychological support regarding: mental health (such as depression / anxiety / trauma), difficulties falling pregnant, following a pregnancy loss, and/or adjustment to motherhood (often presenting as overwhelm and/or anger). My area of particular interest in among these perinatal concerns is supporting women following a traumatic birth.
There is a great array of decisions women make during this time in their lives, and I aim to make you feel respected no matter what your fertility, pregnancy or parenting choices.
If you think you could benefit from some support throughout this time in your life, please reach out to me so we can discuss how my services may be able to support your unique situation.
