Perinatal Mood & Anxiety Disorders (PMAD) like Postpartum Depression affect 1 in 5 birthing people every year and we know, without a doubt, that untreated perinatal mental illness significantly impacts the development of young children.

That is why we couldn’t be happier to create a new pathway via the new Regina Perinatal Health Network (RPHN) for families to ensure they have the support they need to stay healthy throughout the perinatal period!

All supports will be accessible online and FREE for parents in the community! These include one on one support sessions (Prenatal/Postpartum), a weekly PMAD support group as well as a Facebook group where parents can connect.

Although this is a program of the Regina Early Learning Centre, the RPHN will have its own website and social media presence to increase awareness and provide community education specific to this area of health.
