Atrium Health Maternal Wellness Program
From the excitement of conception until baby’s birth, motherhood can be a rewarding and overwhelming experience. A mother may swing from joy to worry, and everything in between, but sometimes those feelings become hard to manage. If you or your loved one is experiencing anxiety or depression during and after pregnancy, we can help. Atrium Health's Maternal Wellness Program is for mothers that may need help managing their feelings during pregnancy and up to one year after birth. The program strives to make life easier and more enjoyable so mothers can enjoy this special time. What is the Maternal Wellness Program? The Maternal Wellness Program is based on the Mothers and Babies© program developed at Northwestern University. Using individual and group therapy, we learn about the mother’s thoughts, activities and support system and recommend strategies to help mothers cope. The goal is to ease depression or anxiety and to increase the bond between mother and child. When should you seek help? If you or your loved one can answer yes to any of these questions, talk to your doctor. • Is it difficult for you to enjoy yourself? • Are you more irritable or tense? • Are you worried, panicky or sad? • Do you feel as if you are “out of control” or “going crazy?” • Are you having difficulty bonding with your baby? • Have you had thoughts of hurting yourself or your baby? How do you participate in the Maternal Wellness Program? Your primary care doctor, OB/GYN or pediatrician can refer you to the program where our team of behavioral healthcare professionals will recommend the best course of treatment based on your symptoms.
