What are PMADs?

Perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (PMADs), otherwise known as “postpartum depression,” are a group of symptoms that can affect women/birthing people during pregnancy and in the postpartum period, causing emotional and physical problems that make it hard to enjoy life and function well. Mood disorders, such as depression, can include symptoms of sadness, loss of pleasure, difficulty concentrating, and changes in energy. Anxiety disorders often include symptoms such as worrying too much, panic attacks, irritability, and obsessionality. See below for more specific descriptions of normal mood variations that occur with childbirth, as well as different types of mood and anxiety disorders that can affect pregnant and postpartum women/birthing people.

The Motherhood Center look like?


The Day Program

The Day Program runs Monday – Friday from 10:00 AM until 3:00 PM. Each day is a full day of evidence-based therapeutic group interventions. In addition, we have individual therapy and medication management, as well as psychoeducation, yoga, mindfulness and meditation, art therapy, and more.

We have a nursery staffed by seasoned infant care professionals. Infant and dyadic specialists are available to help strengthen the bond between the mom/birthing person and the baby.

Outpatient Services

Many women/birthing people who suffer from perinatal mood and anxiety disorders require therapy and/or medication to manage their symptoms. If therapy is recommended, your patient will be paired with one of our experienced perinatal therapists, and if medication is a part of the treatment plan, our reproductive psychiatrists will provide follow-up and management of prescriptions.

Support Groups

The Motherhood Center offers a full array of virtual support groups for new and expecting mothers/birthing people. Whether your patient is experiencing prenatal or postpartum depression or anxiety – our groups can meet your patient where they’re at in their perinatal journey.

Please note that all of The Motherhood Center’s support groups are restricted to only new or expecting moms/birthing people. If you are a student or provider, please refrain from signing up for our groups.
