Postpartum Depression Prevention Mom’s with the Baby Blues

Mom’s with the Baby Blues is especially for pregnant women and moms with new babies - newborn to two years. In our community nurses, counselors, family support workers and teachers are here to support you and work together with you and your health care provider to help you learn to better manage your moods, priorities and life with your family and new baby.

All moms having a baby need help and support. Having a baby brings big changes into your life. Everyone having a baby has lots of questions. Many moms can experience the baby blues shortly after the birth of their new baby due to normal hormonal changes, lack of sleep, and the adjustment to the needs of your newborn and to your needs as a new parent. Often a good diet, rest, the help of your family and friends and exercise can help.

What's available to help?

Information and support, classes and connections to counselors are a part of Moms with the Baby Blues. Classes are free and childcare is available too.
