At the Women & Infants Day Hospital, we believe that pregnant and postpartum women deserve specialized, comprehensive treatment in a comfortable setting. They deserve to receive treatment with medication from a healthcare provider with expertise in safely medicating pregnant and breastfeeding women. They deserve to be with other women suffering from psychiatric conditions at this time in their lives in order to help overcome the sense of shame and isolation that is particular to pregnant and post partum women with these conditions, in a setting that allows them to remain with their infants. This program is different from any other, and over 98% of our patients would recommend this or a similar program to others.
