New Mother-Baby Perinatal Outpatient Program (POP)

The Mother-Baby Program launched a new level of care on September 13, 2016. The new Mother-Baby Perinatal Outpatient Program is the first of its kind in Minnesota and provides group psychotherapy for pregnant women and mothers of children ages 0-5 years old multiple times per week. We are very excited to continue to expand our programming that allows for women to get the mental health treatment they need and deserve while also supporting them in their parenting role. As always, babies 12 months and younger are encouraged to attend with their mom.

New Partnership with ECFE of Minneapolis Public Schools

Beginning Fall 2016, in partnership with Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE) of Minneapolis Public Schools, the Mother-Baby Program will offer a 6-week ECFE class in our space. Women who have completed the Mother-Baby Day Hospital or Intensive Outpatient Program can enroll in the class with their infant age 0-12 months. For more information, please call the Mother-Baby Program at 612-873-6262.
