Postpartum Support In Asheville and WNC for families from doulas with mental health training and experience.
I am a postpartum doula that supports pregnant people and growing families in Asheville and WNC. We need to continue to break the ice to provide mental health support to our communities new families whether it’s their first pregnancy, their 6th birthing experience or they are fostering/adopting/step-parenting. I completed PSI’s Certification in Perinatal Mental Health this fall to have the training needed to provide professional services. Postpartum doulas work on the front lines and are there to help prevent and detect Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders (PMADs) and offer support and resources. Our society has crazy expectations and parenting goals and it is part of the reason that 1 in 7 moms and 1 in 10 dads suffer from PMADs. Here is a list of providers in the area that have been trained in Perinatal Mental Health to get started on your search for support, https://psidirectory.com/k:asheville. Help is available 24 hours a day from Postpartum Support International. Call the PSI Helpline: 1-800-944-4773 (#1 En Espanol or #2 English) OR TEXT: 503-894-9453.
