For those of you that saw a therapist during or after your LOs NICU stay, what kind of therapist did you see?
I was looking under my insurance and they show therapists by specialty. Wasn't sure who would be the best person to see. Just a general family therapist? Grief Counselor? Other?
Re: for those of you who see or have seen a therapist...
All good options - I'd probably start with my OB or the NICU social worker. Probably the social worker would have more preemie/PTSD focused ones.
I actually was already seeing a therapist prior to my sons birth who was recommended by my RE (I was having a hard time with IF), so we contacted her after my son was born and met with her a few times.
Good luck, and kudos to you for realizing it would be helpful for you to talk with someone. This preemie thing is tough, tough stuff.
