Dr. Katherine Hanson Shares Postpartum Depression Resources

One of the things that I think has been really
helpful about the New Moms Group and when we decided to form the group is that we really
wanted it to be free. So we wanted to make sure that anybody, any
mom that felt like she needed the support and the community of other new mothers would
be able to come, regardless of ability to pay. Part of providing the psycho-education around
postpartum depression and anxiety is that we want to be able to have a place to then
send those people that feel like, “I really am struggling and I need more than just this
group.” So one of the great things that Swedish has
done is gave our department funds and a grant to be able to see those women that didn’t
have insurance or were under insured or not covered by a traditional insurance that we
typically take.
