Monthly Seminars & eVENTS
If you are a OBGYN, Pediatrician, Midwife, Doula, Psychiatrist, Primary Care, Internal Medicine or any other provider that comes in contact with pregnant and new mothers – it’s important for you to have a solid understanding of perinatal mood and anxiety disorders. The Motherhood Center is offering monthly Provider Seminars every month. Each seminar will be taught by one of our clinicians.
An Overview of Pharmacologic Treatment Considerations for Pregnant and Postpartum Women
The Project TEACH Maternal Mental Health Initiative
May 8th, 2019 6:30 - 7:30 PM
Up to 20 percent of women will experience mood disorder symptoms during pregnancy or the postpartum period. Weighing the risks and benefits of medication use during the perinatal period can be a challenge for women who are struggling with symptoms of anxiety and depression. Project TEACH’s Maternal Mental Health Initiative strengthens and supports the ability of New York State's OB/GYNs and primary care providers to deliver the best possible care to women during and after pregnancy. This seminar will focus on strategies to help women and their clinicians make informed decisions around pharmacologic interventions for mood disorders during pregnancy and the postpartum period.
