Intrusive Thoughts (Webinar)

Intrusive Thoughts (Webinar)

Intrusive thoughts are often negative, scary or confronting ideas or images that pop into our heads when we don’t want them to be there. 100% of new mothers report unwanted, intrusive thoughts of harming their infant by accident, and 50% report unwanted, intrusive thoughts of harming their infant on purpose. We all have intrusive thoughts, but these are increased during the perinatal period and can be very distressing. Many parents report feeling as though they are alone in this experience.
