What is Promoting Maternal Mental Health During Pregnancy?

  • Promoting Maternal Mental Health During Pregnancy assists pregnant women in moving beyond the physical dimensions of pregnancy to the emotional and psychological challenges they face.
  • Program materials cover theory, practice and interventions with reproducible handouts to use with the pregnant woman. 

How does Promoting Maternal Mental Health During Pregnancy benefit parent-child relationships?

  • In turn, the health of the mother-child relationship directly impacts the child's quality of life, possibly throughout the lifespan.
