Day Program for Women and Newborns
Being a new mom is hard. Possibly the hardest thing you’ll ever have to do. If you feel anxious or depressed, or if something just doesn’t feel right, know that you’re not alone.
The Day Program is an intensive outpatient mental health treatment program for new and expecting moms. Part of the Center for Perinatal Bonding and Support
, the Day Program is led by psychiatrists and therapists who specialize in caring for new and expecting moms.
We welcome new moms to our supportive community where you can speak openly and get help for symptoms including sleeplessness, uncontrollable worrying, emptiness, not feeling like yourself, intrusive thoughts, anxiety and more.
At the Day Program you can expect:
- A combination of individual and group therapy
- Various therapy treatments ranging from interpersonal to art to cognitive behavioral
- Discussions of coping skills, communication, relationships, relaxation and mindfulness
- Support with mother-baby bonding
- The opportunity to connect with other moms experiencing similar symptoms
- Medication management and evaluation (if relevant)
Most insurance plans cover this service, and you don’t need a referral from your doctor.
