Tiny fingers. Tiny toes. Big changes.

Each new stage of your child’s life brings something wonderful and something challenging. The right kind of support makes all the difference in allowing you to fully experience those precious moments and enjoy your child’s first years. The Postpartum Project is a consortium of doulas, lactation consultants, mental health clinicians, and obstetricians.. We connect mothers (and fathers) with the best postpartum care so that mothers can feel healthy and have a healthy bond with their child.

  • The American Association for Marriage and Family Therapists
  • The Women’s Mental Health Consortium in New York City
  • Postpartum Support International
  • The International Marce Society for Perinatal Mental Health
