Perinatal Health and Wellness Program
The Perinatal Health and Wellness Program facilitates access to a variety of clinical support services for women and or their partners who may be struggling during the perinatal period.
Whether you are trying to conceive, are pregnant, or are a new mom, perinatal mood struggles are relatively common experiences for women and their partners. Women often suffer in silence and isolation.
We consider perinatal patients those seeking therapeutic support for pre-conception planning, assisted reproduction, miscarriage, infant loss, pregnancy termination, or pregnancy through the first year after birth.
For new mothers especially, it can be difficult to recognize one's own struggles during the perinatal period, a time expected to be full of joyous bonding with their babies. There may also be stigma or shame about needing help.
Who can use these services? Do I have to be in crisis?
Some women are in crisis, but many others call for support in adjusting to a time of great change. The Perinatal Triage Line is an opportunity to speak with a professional about the appropriateness of further treatment.
Pregnancy and postpartum are times of tremendous transition, and we encourage women and their partners to be part of the solution. And if you’re asking yourself if you should call the answer is often “yes”.
