How We Support Care Providers and Their Clients
At WellMama, we recognize the importance of care providers in the lives of pregnant and postpartum women and their families. That’s why we provide perinatal mood disorders training and support to providers. We’re here to help you see as many clients as possible while providing in-depth, high-quality care.
Help Screening for Perinatal Mood Disorders
We can help you screen patients for perinatal mood disorders, saving you time so you can see more clients throughout the day while still providing quality care. As part of their check-in paperwork, you may provide clients with a copy of the Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale (EPDS). You can print the EPDS or direct clients to our online version. After the appointment, fax the printed EPDS to us at 541-344-1737. One of our volunteers will follow up with clients and direct them to appropriate resources if needed.
