Mental Health Support

Maternal mental health is vital for a healthy pregnancy, and a well-adjusted infant. Sometimes the effects of biological hormones, the pressures of our society, and even friends and family can leave us questioning if we are good enough, and if we can handle everything that comes with a pregnancy and having a baby. Perinatal Connections can help guide you, teach you ways to cope, and empower you to care for yourself first. Find support for your metal health HERE.
