About M-Power

Being pregnant and becoming a new mom can be accompanied by a wide array of emotions, even feeling sad or overwhelmed. Perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (PMADs), like depression, can drain your energy and make it challenging to enjoy everyday life. Even though PMADs are very common, many women are not diagnosed and, therefore, don’t get the support. We’re here to help. In addition to having trained professionals who can help, we’ve assembled a toolkit to help you and your family better understand these mood disorders.
