Individualized and group support for pregnant and postpartum women

Available July 2024

Postpartum depression (PPD) is a prevalent and serious complication of childbearing that can manifest anytime within the first year postpartum, often appearing around six weeks after birth. Despite its significant impact on maternal health, many women experiencing PPD go undiagnosed and untreated due to stigma and insufficient postpartum care visits. High-risk factors such as low socioeconomic status and a history of depression exacerbate the issue.

While SSRIs are commonly prescribed to manage PPD, they are frequently offered without accompanying guidance on essential lifestyle changes like nutrition, sleep, and exercise. Our approach aims to bridge this gap by providing holistic preventative psychiatric care for pregnant women with a history of mental health disorders and individualized care for those diagnosed with perinatal mood disorders. Through supportive group sessions covering topics such as prenatal and postpartum nutrition, exercise, and lactation support, we strive to equip new mothers with the tools and confidence they need for a healthier transition into motherhood.
