Medication Management

We screen every parent for perinatal mood and anxiety concerns. This helps to identify concerns early on and allows early intervention if problems arise. Our providers have comprehensive training to screen and evaluate patients for perinatal mood and anxiety related mental health concerns. We have a strong network of resources to provide collaborative mental health care for families.

Our goal is to support families in every aspect of health. Meeting mental health needs in pregnancy and postpartum can have lasting positive impact on families. We will review all available resources for care including therapy, complimentary alternative therapies, and potential medical causes for mental health symptoms. To provide the best care we will ask to collaborate with the other healthcare professionals on your team.

Our Nurse Practitioner can prescribe non-controlled medication for postpartum anxiety and depression. We will review your health history with you, including previous medication use, and current safety data for medication use during lactation. If specialized care is required, we will assist with coordination and referrals to professionals who can provide tailored care.
