Omaha Postpartum Resources
MilkWorks understands that pregnancy and childbirth can result in depression and/or anxiety, which may make it harder for you to breastfeed and mother your baby. We routinely screen mothers using the Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale (EPDS). If you score high, we strongly encourage you to seek support and/or treatment.
We recommend that you see your Primary Care Provider, Obstetrician, or Nurse-Midwife to seek treatment and to rule out any possible medical causes for depression, including a low thyroid level or a vitamin deficiency.
While there are numerous therapists, counselors, and support groups in our community, the following resources have been recommended to us.
