Psychologist Dr. Diane Sanford has been passionate about helping women improve their health and lead happier lives since counseling her first postpartum mom 25 years ago. She is among the most called-upon women’s health experts and has been interviewed for TV (Good Morning America), newspapers (New York Times, Washington Post), and all major women’s magazines.
In her book, Life Will Never Be the Same: The Real Mom’s Postpartum Survival Guide, she offers practical advice on how to thrive during pregnancy, postpartum and motherhood.
Her most recent venture is the Midwest Mind Body Health Center, which offers classes to women that focus on mindfulness, meditation and being in the present moment. Mind/body techniques are a basic building block of Self-Care and Self-Compassion.
The Center provides counseling and mind-body health classes to reduce anxiety, depression, OCD, PTSD, and stress-related disorders. With a specialized focus in women’s health, they provide care for: pregnancy and postpartum depression and anxiety, fertility issues, pregnancy loss, early motherhood, midlife, empty nest and menopause.
Their approach looks at all the factors affecting life including stress, lifecycle changes, relationships, self-esteem, and work/life balance to determine the best plan of care. Treatment combines counseling with mind-body health classes because studies have shown that mind-body skills decrease anxiety, depression, OCD and PTSD symptoms as well as the stress associated with fertility issues, postpartum depression, midlife changes, menopausal symptoms, and sexual dysfunction. Mind-body skills may also reduce the need for medication.
