Service Description

Having a baby is one of the biggest changes a woman can possibly go through. Here, at Postpartum Support Center, we are committed to helping mothers get a good start for themselves and their babies. The ROSE Program (Reach Out, Stay Strong, Essentials for new mothers), is an evidence-based program that will teach you skills, and provide information and resources that you need to lower the risk of postpartum depression as you navigate your (new) role as a mother. The ROSE program consists of 5 sessions: Session A - Introduction and Psychoeducation - 90 minutes Session B - Role Transitions - 90 minutes Session C - Managing Relationships - 90 minutes Session D - Assertiveness and Goal Setting - 90 minutes Session E (after delivery) - The Review Session - 60 minutes Postpartum depression is a serious condition that affects about 1 in 5 mothers and about 1 in 3 low-income mothers. ROSE (Reach Out, stay Strong, Essentials for mothers of newborns) is a class taught in prenatal settings. ROSE gives pregnant women the skills and information that they need to lower their risk of postpartum depression. ROSE was developed by Dr. Caron Zlotnick at Women and Infants Hospital and Brown University. Five randomized clinical trials have shown that ROSE reduces risk of postpartum depression in low-income women by half. ROSE is the only postpartum depression prevention intervention that (1) has been found to significantly reduce cases of postpartum depression in multiple randomized trials, and (2) has been tested in community prenatal settings with racially and ethnically diverse low-income pregnant women. The ROSE Program has been specifically cited in the new US Preventive Services Task Force recommendation regarding prevention of perinatal depression.
