Who welcomes new babies to your congregation?

Is the Cradle Roll, Guild of the Christ Child, or New Baby Ministry equipped to help a young mother suffering from the most common complication of childbirth? 

 

The goal of Project Healthy Moms from Mental Health America of Georgia is to increase awareness, identification, and treatment of PMADs and support for those suffering while also reducing the stigma. You may know PMAD as postnatal depression. This year over 25,000 Georgia women who are pregnant or have just given birth are likely to suffer.  The feelings of worthlessness and depression have long reaching effects on their young families; they may lead to violence or suicide.

As a congregational leader you may even be the first person to recognize that something is wrong.

Are you prepared to help?

Is your church’s baby or health ministry aware of the resources available to help?

Take a look at the website for Project Healthy Moms.  You will find the information for Moms, Family, and Friends, valuable. The Online Tool Kit contains a screening assessment in English and in Spanish. The WarmLine offers young mothers contact with another mother who has experienced PMAD. There are information on peer support groups, a resource list, and more.
