Brochures for Women, Partners, Families: Depression and Anxiety During and After Pregnancy HRSA’s Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) developed two new companion tri-fold brochures, to alert women and their families and friends, to the symptoms and seriousness of depression and anxiety during and after pregnancy, and how to get help/treatment. Great resources for any health practice or social service agency or the public to download, or view online here. Also, HRSA published a longer booklet on Depression During & After Pregnancy in English and Spanish here under Related Resources.
HRSA’s Maternal and Child Health Bureau’s Alcohol and Substance-Exposed Pregnancy Prevention (AStEPP) initiative The Healthy Start Technical Assistance Center designed AStEPP materials to help community health workers in Healthy Start and home visitors learn more about prevention and early identification of fetal exposure to alcohol or other drugs. These materials can be used by staff in other women-focused social or health service organizations too.
