IOL Launches Peripartum Program

Addressing a longstanding need within the community and society as a whole, the Institute of Living in 2015 launched a special program for the treatment of expecting and new mothers suffering from peripartum mood disorders.

The Peripartum Mood Disorders Program is meant for any expecting or new mother (or father) experiencing symptoms of depression or even minor “baby blues.” Research reveals that this issue is more commonplace than widely believed, with one or two out of every 10 women experiencing peripartum mood disorders in the U.S. The issue has become the most common complication of childbirth in the country, with approximately 1 million women struggling with symptoms every year.
