You are not alone.

Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders (PMADs) are the number one complication of childbirth. They can happen in pregnancy too.

Welcome

Established over two decades ago by a passionate group of clinical professionals, the Postpartum Health Alliance (PHA) has been advocating for maternal (and paternal) mental health before it was cool. Now we are San Diego's go-to nonprofit for perinatal (pregnant and postpartum) families and professionals.

What's up with the blue dot?

The Blue Dot Project

BlueDotA mom, a reproductive psychiatrist and a volunteer with Postpartum Health Alliance came together to create TheBlueDotProject. Receiving a generous grant from the Mason Hirst Foundation, the Project intends to change the face of Postpartum Depression and Anxiety by taking away the stigma and raising awareness.

The Blue Dot is the national symbol for maternal mental health survivor-ship, support, and solidarity.

Very often, when a mom is suffering from PMAD symptoms, it can be very isolating. The hope is that seeing these Blue Dot magnets and stickers around town, will spread the word: we are everywhere. Let her know she’s not alone.
