About the Center

The Center for Postpartum Adjustment, a private and professional group of mental health clinicians, was established in 1986 to provide support for pregnant women or those with postpartum depression. Our highly trained staff is especially sensitive to the impact PPD can have on the new mother, father, baby, family unit, and society as a whole.

The Center’s approach ensures that all aspects of the disorder – psychological, biological and social – are adequately considered. Every patient can be certain of an accurate diagnosis and an appropriate treatment plan. When continuing treatment is necessary, a personal approach is tailored to the individual needs of the patient.
