Psychology

Maintaining your total health and wellbeing is important at all times in your life, but especially before, during and after pregnancy, and during your years as a parent. This period can present many challenges, some of which may impact on your mental health. That’s why Greenslopes Obstetrics & Gynaecology has partnered with independent, qualified women’s psychologists.

Women’s Psychologist –​ Laura Grace

Chronic pain can have a huge impact on your life and require significant adjustment. Chronic pelvic pain, in particular, can have a far-reaching impact on your social life, career, time spent with family, sex life and your relationship with your partner. Psychologist Laura Grace can assist you in coping with the impact of pain, and to live a full life by providing you with support and space to navigate the emotional side of your condition. Laura helps women, their partners and families to maintain their health and wellbeing and navigate the challenges that chronic pain or pregnancy can bring.
