Clients partner Zach, and clients mother were at this prenatal. they both plan to be at the birth. Client has been having back pain, so I gave her some referrals to a couple of chiropractors in the area that take her insurance. she says baby is in a "tough position" and we talked about different things she can do to try and get her body feeling more comfortable. we made a birth plan and talked about pain relief options that the hospital provides, and pain relief things I can do to help her in early labor. we talked about what to expect at the corvallis hospital when she goes there in labor, and what the experience is like. she got diagnosed with a blood disorder recently, as well as gall bladder issues and we talked through her emotions about these. the client battles negative body image, and depression and we talked about those and her fears for them getting worse postpartum. we talked about making sure she has her therapy set up for after baby arrives, as well as being honest with her doctor and asking for a medication increase PP if she is feeling the depression suddenly getting worse, she is excited to have access to 4 PP visits, and feels that will be extremely helpful for her. I gave them the information about healthy families, and they declined a referral to them.
