​Reproductive Mental Health and Wellness

Women experience a range of changes throughout their reproductive journey both physically and emotionally. The Christ Hospital partners with Galia Collaborative to provide additional resources for mental health and overall wellness. 

Our joint mission is to offer a trusted support system and stress-reducing guidance. Areas of support include: 

  • Infertility struggles 

  • Prenatal wellness concerns for mom and/or baby  

  • COVID-19 related anxiety or social isolation 

  • Traumatic childbirth  

  • Postpartum depression and anxiety 

  • Miscarriage or infant loss 

  • Adjusting to parenthood 

  • Relationship strain. 

Our goal is to reduce or eliminate barriers that may keep women from addressing their mental health and emotional wellness needs, like not wanting to leave home, limited access to childcare, or simply not knowing where to turn. 

We hope to meet a wide range of needs through this partnership program, from women who could benefit from a supportive conversation to potentially connecting someone to a physician or longer-term resource for additional care. 

"Women often put their families before themselves, so it's important for them to understand how recognizing and treating mental health needs is a benefit for themselves and their families."
