Absolutely! I have used counseling in the past and found having the time and space to talk about things really helpful.

It's good to have someone who isn't involved that listens, counsellors dont tell you what to do, they dont sort it all out for you but they help you see the wood from the trees they make you feel able to make your own decisions. It's amazing, you have to keep going dont stop after the first one or two because you got upset keep going and it will be worth it.

thank you for being supportive, it has been very hard for me to let go and speak to someone about it all, i was crying all the way through

Yes, and can highly recommend it! Mine wasn't baby related but other issues, but she really helped.
As someone else said they won't tell you what to do, which I initially found a bit disappointing! But is much better in the long run to sort it out on your own, with their support and clarity IYSWIM.
