Mother and Baby Wish List

wish list postpartum depression

The Pine Rest Mother and Baby Program provides a unique opportunity for women with perinatal mood disorders to receive treatment in an environment which enhances mother/baby bonding.

Only the second of its kind in the country, the Pine Rest Mother and Baby Program is a day program lasting on average five days. It includes the addition of a nursery, allowing mothers to bring their babies with them on a daily basis. This feature eliminates many barriers to women seeking treatment such as separation from their baby, childcare and feeding issues and it allows us to work with mother and baby, eliminating poor outcomes for the baby.

Some of the moms we treat face additional hardships, many of which are economic. Those coming from a distance may lack the means to pay for gas, rent a hotel room or grab dinner while they are going through the program. Others will run out of diapers or formula. We would like to be able to eliminate additional barriers and stressors by providing baby supplies like diapers and formula, access to a breast pump, and gift cards for gas, food and hotel rooms when necessary.

Please make a donation by selecting an item or items from the Wish List and make a real difference in the life of a mother and her baby. Contact the Mother and Baby Program Staff at 616/258-7509 to make a donation.
