|Welcome to Postpartum Health Alliance|
Depression and Anxiety
are the most common complications of childbirth.
They can happen in pregnancy, too.
Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders (PMADs), which include Postpartum Depression, affect 1 in 8 pregnant and new mothers.
Whether you are a mom who is struggling, a concerned friend or relative, or a health professional, we at Postpartum Health Alliance can offer you support and referrals to resources that can help.
Call our warmline at 619-254-0023 to speak with a supportive volunteer about PMADs and find local resources for help.
Visit our blog at postpartumhealthalliance.blogspot.com for information on PMADs from the point of view of mental health professionals and survivors.
Please visit our Supporter Page to view the generous individuals, organizations and businesses that support our mission!
