The Regina Perinatal Health Network (RPHN)  -  A Network committed to creating easier access to treatment and support for women/birthing people in the community who are experiencing a Perinatal Mood & Anxiety Disorder (PMAD). Our goal is to act as a singular point of referral within our community (for members of the public & medical professionals) who are needing resources or support in building a recovery plan. We also work diligently to increase awareness and reduce stigma surrounding Perinatal Mood & Anxiety Disorders (PMAD’s), organize ongoing educational opportunities and resources for those who work with new families. Most importantly, we provide social support through our weekly support group (Online/ In-person) as well as one-on-one support during a private wellness session.
