Maternal Depression

When a family welcomes a new child into the world, it’s supposed to be a time of happiness. Yet for many new mothers, maternal depression dampens this joy. Left untreated, it can damage their ability to bond with their young child. Post-partum depression and depression during pregnancy are common, but they often go undiagnosed.

The Healthy Babies Program helps screen women for maternal depression and connects them to appropriate resources and treatment. For more information, visit the Healthy Babies website or call 530-225-5850.

Additional resources:

  • Moms and moms to be can learn more about maternal anxiety and depression on the National Child and Maternal Health Education Program website. Partners, family and friends can find information about warning signs and how to offer support as well.
  • Motherhood – Marvelous & Monstrous: Hear from Shasta County moms who open up about their hardships — during and after pregnancy — and how they found support and joy in motherhood.
  • March of Dimes: Program with a mission to end preventable maternal health risks and deaths.
