The New Mom Checklist for Maternal Mental Health Help was created by Postpartum Progress® to facilitate helpful conversation between struggling mothers and the clinicians who can help them.  It has a 5th grade reading level, and was developed with feedback from clinical experts and more than 30 survivors of maternal mental illness.  

Objectives:

  • Empower mothers to help themselves.
  • Serve as a tool to facilitate conversations that can be difficult for mothers to start with their doctors and other care providers.
  • Reinforce the variety of recognized, evidence-based symptoms of perinatal mood and anxiety disorders to both mothers and clinicians.
  • Reinforce the variety of recognized, evidence-based risk factors of perinatal mood and anxiety disorders to both mothers and clinicians.
  • Help clinicians get a clearer picture of how to best assist their patients.
