In light of the COVID-19 crisis and the heightened importance of delivering evidence-based programs to help provide perinatal support for women in need, MomMoodBooster is proud to announce its partnership with WellMama. As a community-based nonprofit mental health organization based in the Pacific Northwest, WellMama works with community networks and uses its peer support services to promote mental wellness throughout the transition to parenthood. Its mission is to provide information, advocacy, and appropriate treatment opportunities for people suffering from perinatal mood or anxiety disorders as well as mental health conditions related to all reproductive health events. WellMama also works to raise community awareness of perinatal mental health by providing education on prevention, universal screening, and appropriate treatment and resources to new and expectant parents and the professionals who serve them.

About 1 in every 9 pregnant and postpartum (perinatal) women experience depression
Research-Driven Treatment Options
In a controlled trial, 79% of depressed women assigned to receive MomMoodBooster were no longer diagnosed depressed at the end of 3 months. By contrast, only 18% of women in usual care were no longer depressed. MMB users also showed a greater reduction in the severity of their depression symptoms. The benefits of MMB have been demonstrated and replicated in research published in peer-reviewed journals.About Us

I felt frustrated, tearful and overwhelmed after my baby was born. I thought I just had baby blues. But, since getting some help, I know that these were signs of postpartum depression.
