Mothers and Babies Course

< Back to All Resources

The Mothers and Babies Course is a preventive, mood-management course for pregnant women and mothers in the first 12 months postpartum who are at high risk for perinatal depression. The course teaches perinatal women cognitive-behavioral mood regulation strategies, in which their thoughts, behaviors, and social contacts affect their mood and vice versa. It also explains the benefits of strengthening mother–infant bonds. The overall goals are to prevent perinatal depression, strengthen the mother–infant relationship, and enhance both the mother’s and the infant’s mental and physical health.
