Postpartum Depression: Reducing Your Risk 
Perinatal Mood Disorders are the most common complication of childbirth, affecting 15%-20% of women. Perinatal Mood Disorder (PMD) is the term used to describe depression, anxiety or psychosis that occurs during pregnancy or up to a year after giving birth. You can reduce your risk by making a plan. Let our staff help you and your support person learn warning signs of PMD, identify and strengthen your resources, learn actions to increase health and reduce risk and get information on postpartum community resources. 

Pathway to Health: Mind, Body & Soul
Ready to try a different approach to fitness? Pathway to Health involves more than exercise, eating right, and willpower. True wellness addresses our entire being—body, soul, and mind. We all face similar challenges to reaching and maintaining a healthy weight, however, we are also all very different—what we’re motived by, what we enjoy, what our obstacles are. Pathway to Health will help you gain insight into issues which directly affect your success with a fitness program and will equip you with tools to help you live a more fulfilling life.

The Pathway to Health Program includes sessions with a certified Personal Trainer, membership to the Pella Rec Center, and a six-week class entitled “Training Your Mind.” We will teach you proven strategies for the common challenges people face when they begin a fitness program, help you set realistic fitness and weight goals, find your motivation to exercise, develop strategies to stick to your program, and confront habits which may get in the way of your success.
