A warm hello to you! My name is Jill Christensen. I am a Registered Social Worker and Private Counsellor here in Saskatoon. I own Calm After the Stork Counselling Services; Saskatoon’s only counselling agency specializing in Pre-natal and Post-natal Family Mental Health!
“My dream for specific services for new parents, parents dealing with loss and growing families came to light when my partner and I started our own family. When researching the prenatal class options, I noticed there was nothing specific to our mental health in preparing for baby, adjusting to baby or the expected relationship adjustments when caring for a little person. Calm After the Stork originated in 2015 as a pre-natal class focused on mental health founded by Paige Gryba, Psychologist and myself. This was just the beginning! I saw a need and chose to expand my clinical background and focus on this very important stage of family development, along side my ‘personal research!’ What a wild ride! I am mother to two lovely children under five that keep me hopping!”
Calm After the Stork Counselling Services offers individual and couple sessions for the following needs:
-Coping with Pregnancy
-Birth Preparation for Mental Health
-Postpartum Depression and Anxiety Prevention
-Planning for Postpartum
-Birth Trauma Recovery
-Growing Family Adjustment
Jill is a Certified Trauma Therapist and is also currently pursuing her Certification in Perinatal and Mood Disorders to help her serve you even better!
It would be an honour to support you to thrive along your parenting journey. I look forward to meeting you!
