Whether you are trying to conceive, pregnant, or a new mom, perinatal mood struggles are relatively common experiences for women and their partners. Yet women often suffer in silence and isolation.
CPMC’s Perinatal Health and Wellness Program facilitates access to a variety of clinical support services for women and their partners facing these challenges – or just wanting support during this time of change. You’ll find therapeutic support for pre-conception planning, assisted reproduction, miscarriage, infant loss, pregnancy termination, postpartum depression, or pregnancy during the first year after birth.
New mothers, especially, can find it difficult to recognize their own struggles during the perinatal period, a time expected to be full of joyous bonding with their babies. You may feel ashamed about seeking help.
A good place to begin is our Perinatal Triage Line (415) 600-3637, a free consultation service. A professional can listen to your concerns, offer support and refer you to further treatment if needed.
