Maternal Wellness Program Overview

Pregnancy can be a time of great excitement, anticipation and joy. It can also be overwhelming as you adjust to your new role, make parenting decisions and feel exhausted. Depression and anxiety are common complications of pregnancy and can occur before or after an individual has given birth.

Our program’s licensed clinical social workers will provide you with support through your journey as a mother, to find relief from stress and any symptoms of perinatal mood and anxiety disorders or postpartum depression that may be present.
