We all have a role to play in helping families find the supports they need to thrive.

The perinatal period, the time during pregnancy and the first year after delivery, is a critical time to support the health and wellbeing of parents, caregivers, babies and families. The Perinatal Continuum of Care illustrates the various services and supports that families may encounter and describes opportunities to promote or address perinatal mental health across these services. It encourages providers from a variety of service areas to recognize and embrace their role in supporting perinatal mental health and highlights available resources so that providers can help families connect with the supports they need to be resilient and thriving.
