21 Mar Support for Our New Moms
At The Pediatric Center, we strive to care for our newborn patients. We realize that a large part of a baby’s health depends on the well-being of the mother. We know that during pregnancy and after the birth of a baby there is a risk of developing depression, and the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force has recently issued a statement recommending that all women should be screened for depression during pregnancy and in the postpartum period. Complying with this recommendation, we will be screening our new moms with a simple survey in the months immediately following the birth of your little one.
