​What is a Mental Health Plan?

A perinatal mental health plan is a written document to help prepare the birthing parent AND the partner/support person for the emotional changes during pregnancy and postpartum. 


Often during pregnancy, so much time and effort is dedicated to preparing for the delivery of baby (reading books, attending birth/feeding/newborn care classes, etc.) And once the baby arrives the needs of parents are easily forgotten. The postpartum period can be a vulnerable time with so many changes, both physically and emotionally. The best way to prepare for this time is to have a plan.

In a Life With Baby planning session, you will learn the best ways to emotionally prepare for the arrival of your baby, and the change of life that follows.  We will work together to create a written mental health plan for both the birthing parent, and the partner/support person for the most critical areas during your the postpartum time including sleep, nutrition, support and self care. 


Ideally, a mental health plan would be created during pregnancy in the 2nd or 3rd trimester. However, it is never too late! A plan also can be created after baby is born. 

Available nationwide in the United States & Canada.
