About the Redleaf Center for Family Healing
The new Redleaf Center for Family Healing offers a range of mental health, trauma healing, and parenting support for pregnant and postpartum women and families of young children. In addition to the Mother-Baby Program’s mental health and trauma healing services, we plan to offer new ways to support families through a hospital-based drop-in childcare center, a teaching kitchen and gathering space, and other integrative services.View Our Services

Words from Our Moms
“I felt validated and heard. The therapists were very good and supportive. I liked the connection with the other moms and that my partner could be involved. I also felt safe to start medication with the ability to see Dr. Kim throughout the week.”
“I loved the amount of time I was given to tell my story and receive advice from the therapists and the group.”
“I loved that I met people who were going through the same thing as me.”
“The staff understand how you can feel bad and still care about your baby, even If you can't always show it.”
“When I started the program I was in such a deep depression and my anxiety felt all consuming. I never thought I'd be able to really be a mom. I felt like I wasn't good enough, strong enough, brave enough, or capable enough to parent a child while I felt so broken inside. The weeks spent at the program changed my life forever.”
Our team of perinatal psychiatrists, psychotherapists, mental health workers and volunteers would be honored to serve you and your family.
