Mental Health for Pregnant and Postpartum Women

Program Outline

The Miracle Babies Perinatal Mental Wellness Program is designed to provide immediate support and treatment to any individual experiencing prenatal or postpartum depression and anxiety. We seek to serve as a bridge for patients who face long wait times between their initial mood disorder diagnosis and their first psychology or psychiatry appointment by providing immediate triage services (within 72 hours) and access to individualized therapy (regardless of insurance status).

By addressing the existing gap between diagnosis and care, we will provide much needed short-term support for women while ensuring that uninsured and low income women are connected with appropriate providers for continuation of care.
