Perinatal Mood & Anxiety Disorders (PMADs)

Perinatal Mood & Anxiety Disorders (PMADs) are the number one medical complication related to pregnancy. This is more prevalent than gestational diabetes and hypertension, among others. We provide professional counseling on a sliding scale to all moms and dads who may be struggling with sadness, irritability, anger, excessive guilt, or trouble bonding with their baby.

These symptoms can arise during pregnancy or after birth and can limit a mother or father’s ability to care for and bond with their baby. The most common experience is depression, but anxiety, trauma, or obsessions and compulsions are also common. While 20% of all moms and 10% of all dads experience a PMAD, know that there is hope. All of these are very treatable through a combination of mental, medical and spiritual care. We want to walk alongside you toward hope and healing.

Some common forms of PMADs include:

  • Postpartum Depression (PPD)
  • Baby Blues
  • Postpartum Anxiety
  • Postpartum OCD
Is it confidential?

Yes, our clinic strongly values confidentiality. We aim to create a safe and completely confidential environment to protect both your privacy and safety. Whether you are pregnant, experienced rape, a victim of sexual assault, date rape, or any type of abuse, we are here for you and want Hope Clinic to feel like a safe place to heal. 

How much does it cost?

All of our professional counseling is provided on a sliding scale based on income (per a recent pay stub or tax documents). Sessions range between $25-$85. Our Support Groups are available on a donation basis. We never want cost to be an inhibitor, so limited scholarships are available. Please be prepared with income documentation at your first session.

How long are the sessions?

Each session, whether a support group or one-on-one counseling is scheduled for an hour and is available in person or virtually via a HIPAA-compliant video call service, Doxy.

Is this service faith-based?

While Hope Clinic is a faith-based nonprofit, we incorporate spirituality and faith to the degree you desire. If faith is a part of your journey we want to integrate that into the therapeutic process. If you are uncomfortable with faith conversations we will lean into our evidence-based and professional training for PMADs counseling.

What PMADs are included in your counseling scope?

We can explore a variety of manifestations of Perinatal Mood & Anxiety Disorders that commonly show themselves in sadness, irritability, anger, excessive guilt, or trouble bonding with their baby. Here are some of the PMADs that we want to walk with you through:

  • Postpartum Anxiety
