Maternal Mental Health is in Crisis

Anxiety, intrusive thoughts, postpartum depression, stress, lack of health resources and information, and isolation have increased in pregnant women and new moms.

Healthcare providers know how poor maternal mental health impacts the mother, child, family, and community, but there is limited time and resources to provide the necessary help during prenatal and postpartum check-ups.

Previa Alliance helps women navigate their unique journey to motherhood by providing the resources and support necessary to protect and strengthen their mental health. Working directly with obstetric and mental health providers, Previa Alliance supports women’s well-being from pregnancy through the first year after delivery.

Of maternal mental health issues go untreated


Of women don’t attend their 6-week follow up appointment where most screenings occur

What We Do

Previa Alliance is a maternal mental health company founded on personal experience with postpartum depression. Our primary goal is to educate women about maternal mental health, including providing regular depression screenings throughout pregnancy and the first year postpartum.

We partner with obstetrics providers and enroll their pregnant patients into the Previa Alliance program. The physician offices promote the program through materials placed in the office and by reminding patients to complete their screenings and take advantage of the learning resources available on our digital platform.

Previa Alliance also partners with mental health specialists trained in maternal mental health counseling. When requested or if indicated via screening, we have patient navigators that help connect women to mental health specialists for telehealth or in-person care. Our mental health specialists include licensed counselors as well as psychiatrists.

What We Offer Providers

Previa Alliance aims to walk alongside healthcare providers to ensure the whole patient is cared for. We bridge the gap between physical health care and mental well-being.


We start by onboarding your office to our program. Each healthcare provider’s office will receive a laptop which they will use to help register women into the program and access patient progress reports. Previa Alliance provides training to your staff that explains the program and key talking points to share with patients during each visit, like reminding them to complete their scheduled screenings or access educational content that aligns with their perinatal/postpartum status.

Marketing Materials

Previa Alliance provides each provider with marketing materials that can be posted around the office. These materials include images of PAM, our Previa Alliance Mom, used to visually engage the women in the learning process. Included in these materials are posters and pamphlets that also include QR codes, so women can scan and quickly access our website, Instagram, or podcast.

Doctor/Nurse Reports

Healthcare providers will also receive weekly and on-demand doctor/nurse reports that provide progress notes on each of their patients. Providers can easily view a patient’s most recent depression screening report as well as see how engaged the patient is with Previa Alliance’s resources. This information is intended to allow for collaborative care, so providers can better interact with patients and Previa Alliance can provide more targeted support in the form of education or connection with mental health providers.

Online Learning

In the near future, Previa Alliance will also offer online learning for healthcare providers on topics related to PMADs, including PMAD treatment and medication.

Ways Previa Alliance Supports Providers:

Freedom to focus on physical obstetric care while ensuring that perinatal mood and anxiety disorder (PMAD) screenings are completed.

Evidenced-based education to patients regarding PMADs during pregnancy and postpartum.

Elimination of workload associated with navigating barriers to mental therapy care.

Collaborative approach to overall well-being via regular reports on patient screening and participation data.

Perinatal and Postpartum Mental Health Facts

Postpartum depression (PPD) is the number one complication of childbirth, occurring in 1 in 3 women in the post-Covid era. Postpartum depression can present at any time in the first year after childbirth, often coinciding with a return to work by the mother. Anxiety, depression, and intrusive thinking can occur at any point during pregnancy.

Along with being most common, perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (PMADs) are the costliest complications of pregnancy. A 2017 research article published by the American Public Health Association stated that the cost of untreated PMADs is $14.2 billion, with employer health plans carrying most of the cost.

The American Psychological Association states that about half of the women who receive a PPD diagnosis experience symptoms during pregnancy. It’s an important reason for the importance of reducing stigma around this condition.

Women avoid disclosing symptoms of anxiety/depression to their doctors out of fear of stigma, being judged as an “unfit” mother, or having their child removed from the home (Chew-Graham, Sharp, Chamberlain, Folkes, & Turner, 2009).

Bottom Line: Women need to feel encouraged to seek help and treatment as soon as they notice symptoms and then be supported for doing so!
