Pregnancy and Postpartum Adjustment Programs
Having a baby is usually a happy time in a family’s life. However, many women experience emotional changes after childbirth that can have a serious impact on everyone in the family. Seventy-five to eighty percent of new moms will experience the “baby blues.” It is described as mild depression mixed with happier feelings. If the “baby blues” last more than two weeks, or if symptoms become worse, you may have a form of Pregnancy and Postpartum Mood and Anxiety Disorders (PMAD), the number one complication of pregnancy and childbirth.
Flagstaff Medical Center has an array of FREE Pregnancy and Postpartum Adjustment Programs to provide education, support and clinical treatment to help strengthen and heal your family.
The Pregnancy and Postpartum Adjustment Programs provide:
- PMAD screening before discharge
- Pregnancy and Postpartum Adjustment Group
- Arizona Parent Kit

We want to answer your questions and provide you and your family with the tools that you need to get a good start raising your baby.
