Thrive Postpartum is a support system focused on the physical, emotional, spiritual, and mental well-being of new parents. We acknowledge the sacredness of the postpartum period and offer education tools and materials to serve as a sort of “roadmap” through postpartum—so that families don’t feel alone and caught off guard by the many surprises that the postpartum period brings.
The deterioration of women’s health has unfortunately become normalized. Thrive Postpartum advocates for the betterment of women’s health, especially in the postpartum period where we know there are unique and frequently ignored struggles that impact both physical and mental health in particular. With appropriate supportive and educational resources, we aim to improve these outcomes for the families we work with.
An oft overlooked part of the prenatal experience is preparing for what’s to come postpartum. Postpartum education and resources should be accessible to new parents within the prenatal period so that they feel prepared when baby arrives, not overwhelmed.
* Suicide is the #3 leading cause of death in mothers.
Our goal is to build a virtual platform that educates and empowers parents to thrive during the postpartum period. Our main focus is the mental health component that will teach parents the key signs of perinatal mental health concerns, how to screen for them, who to contact, and how to effectively and confidently ask for help . We will also build a newborn care education section AND a section for new parent self care.
