If you feel that you or a loved one may be suffering from pregnancy-related mood disorder, we strongly encourage you to reach out to your healthcare provider.

If you have thoughts of harming yourself or your baby or if your pregnant/postpartum loved one is exhibiting frightening or bizarre thoughts/behaviors call 911 immediately. A phone call is the first, and sometimes the hardest, step toward getting well.
