Maternal Mental Health Program

Four Core Principles

At Hoag, our Maternal Mental Health Program focuses on four core principles:

  1. Universal screening for maternal depression
  2. Connection to support services
  3. Early intervention and treatment
  4. Community education

Our program includes an outpatient clinic where expectant and new moms with various mental health conditions can meet with a psychiatrist, licensed marriage and family therapist or a licensed clinical social worker to receive the care they need or be connected to local resources. Additionally, we offer the following services:

  • Preconception planning (women with existing mental health conditions or who are already taking medications and are planning to conceive)
  • Mental health assessment during pregnancy and postpartum
  • Individual and group psychotherapy
  • Medication safety evaluation during pregnancy and breastfeeding
  • Pharmacogenomics testing
  • Connection to local support services
