Mother Baby Inpatient Program (Grand Rapids)

Some Moms need more intensive support than outpatient therapy can provide.  Thanks to Pine Rest Christian Mental Health Services, a Mom doesn’t have to leave her baby to get it.  They have created one of the few hospital programs for Moms with more elevated Postpartum Depression or Anxiety symptoms to receive the care she needs with baby at her side so no bonding is interrupted during the crucial period for both Mother and Infant.

Moms Bloom

A local organization that help Moms with a variety of needs, started by a woman who survived postpartum depression herself!

Pospartum Support International

Postpartum Support International (PSI) offers a world of articles, events and resources to women everywhere.

Sex Help

Many women have fears about sex following childbirth, pain, or lack of desire for sex with their husbands even though they love them very much.  Sometimes people rethink their sex lives prior to children and want to negotiate a new sexual pact that is more inline with the values they want to teach their children.  The addition of a baby often causes parents to rethink a lot of things in their life and sex is no exception.  For those who have concerns about their or their spouse’s use of pornography, compulsive sexual behaviors, or pattern of infidelity, can be a very useful resource.  There is even a screening tool that can be used to help determine the extent of a sexual or intimacy problem.
