PREGNANT PAUSE – OUR NEWSLETTER
MHA of Georgia’s Project Healthy Moms would like to introduce you to our monthly newsletter, Pregnant Pause. As the saying goes, knowledge is power, and we keep you abreast of the latest developments in the field of perinatal mood disorders as well as opportunities in Georgia for awareness, education, prevention, treatment, and recovery.
Project Healthy Moms is an important initiative of MHA of Georgia. Perinatal mood disorders are the most common complication of childbirth. In the United States, between 10% and 15% of new mothers suffer from these devastating illnesses which, if not properly treated, can have a long-term negative impact on the health of not only the mothers, but their children and families as well. In Georgia alone, it is estimated that every year about 30,000 women experience a perinatal mood disorder. Our goal is to increase awareness, identification, treatment, and support of perinatal mood disorders in Georgia, while also reducing the stigma associated with them. The launch of Pregnant Pause is just one step towards that goal.
