Perinatal Outpatient Program

Perinatal Outpatient Program

Intensive outpatient group therapy and parenting support (4 1/2 hours per week)

The Mother-Baby Perinatal Outpatient Program (POP), like the Mother-Baby Day Hospital, serves pregnant individuals and mothers of children ages 0-5 years old who are experiencing symptoms of depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder or other emotional distress that make it difficult to:

  • Function at home or at work
  • Take care of themselves or their baby
  • Bond and connect with their baby

Need help? Call the HopeLine or fill out our Referral Form. This form can be filled out by anyone; a doctor or provider referral is not required.


How is POP different than the Mother-Baby Day Hospital?

POP is considered a step-down or less intensive option than the Mother-Baby Day Hospital. There are a few important differences:

  • If medication consultation is needed, our staff will help get you connected with an outpatient psychiatrist.
  • POP meets 90 minutes per day, 3 days per week, both virtual and in-person.
  • Most people attend POP for 8-12 weeks. This is a longer program than the Mother-Baby Day Hospital, but meets fewer hours per week.

How is POP similiar to the Mother-Baby Day Hospital?

POP provides individualized treatment and is similar in the following ways:

  • Mental health treatment supports mothers' well-being, relationships and parenting;
  • A powerful aspect of the program is talking with other mothers who have similar experiences;
  • Mothers with babies less than 12 months old are encouraged to bring their baby with them.

Vaccination Policy

In the Mother-Baby Day Hospital, Perinatal Outpatient Program, and Mother-Baby Connections Group, we want all babies, pregnant individuals, and mothers to be protected and supported. For babies 3-12 months that come to group with their mothers, we ask that babies are up to date with the recommended schedule of vaccinations, as put forth by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the CDC. This policy only applies to mothers and babies participating in-person at the Mother-Baby Program.



Our staff will listen and guide you to the right support — either at the Mother-Baby HopeLine or in your community.
