Postpartum Support Center is a community based nonprofit organization founded in Marin County, California. Our purpose is to provide a postpartum support system to new parents and families in need. Through our services, they are no longer alone in their struggles. Our main goal is to help new mothers and their support teams navigate through the postpartum period with as little stress as possible while helping them build their own support system.
Postpartum Support Center works with hospitals, local organizations, social workers, volunteers, and other partners to transform the way moms and families experience the postpartum period. Our programs are created to provide support to all new parents who lack a social support system and access to information and resources.
Our mission is to provide a support system and a safe place for mothers and families in need and to promote awareness and prevention of Maternal and Paternal Mental Disorders.
Our vision is that mothers and families have access to information and resources and are well prepared for parenthood in a supportive community free from social stigmas regarding Perinatal Mental Disorders.
Very often new parents find it difficult to leave the house and ask for the help they need; they lack social support, practical support, and vetted resources, but through our programs, we strive to give them the help they need in a supportive community. We have multiple programs and volunteer opportunities so each individual or group can select the right fit for them to show their support.
We provide FREE peer support via support groups, phone calls, texts, chats, emails, and in person. We also provide referrals and connections to treatment.
Our main programs are Postpartum Support Groups, Peer Support and Referrals, You've Got This Care Packages, and Helping Hand Cleaning Certificates. Our programs are intended to provide emotional, practical and educational support.
We do not offer crisis management services. If you or someone you know is in immediate danger, please call 911. For additional safety information, contact the National Suicide Prevention Hotline at 1-800-273-8255.
