The National Healthy Mothers, Healthy Babies Coalition joins the US Department of Health and Human Services’ Office on Women’s Health in celebrating National Women’s Health Week with a Webinar on the mental health needs of moms before, during and after pregnancy.

HMHB was the first major maternal-infant health organization to include the issue of maternal mental health among their priorities. Their acclaimed TEXT4BABY program includes – among its messages related to mother/baby well-bring throughout pregnancy and the first year of life – encouragement to mothers to reach out for help should symptoms of depression develop.

The Webinar will take place on Wednesday, May 16, 2012 from 2:00 – 3:00 pm Eastern Time. Featuring therapist, author and maternal mental health expert Susan Dowd Stone, MSW, LCSW, the Webinar will offer an overview of this critical issue for maternal-child health, spotlighting the importance of prevention and awareness. Among the topics to be covered: minimizing the long-term effects of mental health problems, how mom’s emotional wellness can enhance baby’s first year of life, and helpful resources for both providers and parents.
