The Perinatal Intensive Outpatient Program offers day treatment for those with prenatal, postpartum, and post-adoption anxiety or depression. The program offers group-based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and mindfulness, in addition to education on parent-child bonding and positive parenting. Babies are welcome, and are cared for by labor & delivery nurses while parents attend treatment. Though the program is based on a four week curriculum, the average stay is six weeks. Participants begin by attending four days per week, and generally taper attendance as they progress in treatment.
