Marriage and Family Therapist Helps Expectant and New Parents

Thu, 15 Mar 2012 12:59:14 EST

Colleyville, Texas , USA - Susan Martinez, MA, LMFT,  Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, read Dr. Karp's book, 'The Happiest Baby on the Block' and found the "5 S's" so helpful for both her children that she completed Dr. Karp's training and certification program so that she could incorporate it into her counseling and therapeutic work with expectant and new parents, helping them to experience the same success in calming their baby.

Besides loving their baby like crazy, new parents have two main jobs when it comes to caring for new babies: feeding them successfully and calming them when they cry. Many resources are available to help mothers avoid and overcome feeding problems, but for parents of crying babies there is little help available besides well intentioned advice to let them cry. Yet waves of crying can cause infantile stress, interfere with secure attachment, erode a parent's confidence, contribute to nursing failure, marital stress, postpartum depression, and even abuse.

The Happiest Baby Program teaching parents simple, effective and nurturing techniques to quickly soothe their babies' cries and help them sleep a little longer. The basics are taught in a simple 2 hour class or private consultation. Ongoing counseling sessions are available for additional issues such as stress, relationship problems, postpartum depression, anxiety, and more.  

Susan Martinez, MA, LMFT (www.SusanMartinezLMFT.com) provides counseling and therapy services for individuals, couples, and families in her private practice and she has a special interest in relationships, parenting, perinatal and postpartum adjustment, infertility, depression, anxiety and more.

According to the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy, therapists with specific education and training in marriage and family therapy provide the most effective mental health care to individuals, couples, and families. 

Susan recommends parents contact her during the third trimester of pregnancy for Happiest Baby instruction as part of preparing for the birth of their baby, but Susan welcomes appointment requests at any time and if parents can't come to her office, arrangements can be made for Susan to make house calls and hospital visits, which can be particularly helpful for postpartum moms with colicky babies. Service area includes: Colleyville, Grapevine, Southlake, Hurst, Euless, Bedford, Keller, North Richland Hills.
