Providing emotional support for moms & building healthier families
Perinatal Behavioral Health Service


The Perinatal Behavioral Health Services (PBHS) team at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, MO - with the help of the Barnes Foundation and the MO Child and Family Health Coalition-- provides screening, evaluation and treatment for women and their partners who are experiencing pregnancy-related or postpartum stress, Depression, Anxiety, and mood disorders.

Good mental health is an important part of overall health. This can be especially true during the prenatal, perinatal, and post-natal periods when complex emotions can affect pregnancy outcomes, the ability to parent, physical well-being and overall quality of life.

The PBHS team specializes in helping women manage stress and practice coping skills. We are dedicated to improving women's physical and mental health through individual consultations, therapy, referrals, and medication management.  We are committed to working closely with OB/GYN and women's health care providers to enhance physical and psychological well-being, restore functioning and improve quality of life.
