Resource Guide

WELCOME TO THE MAINE RESOURCE PAGE FOR PSI. We are glad you found us. This page lists the PSI Coordinators and other area resources such as groups, telephone support, and reliable services that are available for no charge. We also list local events, trainings, and volunteer opportunities.

PLEASE CONTACT YOUR PSI COORDINATOR: PSI Coordinators offer caring and informed support and resources to moms and their families. They also provide information and resources for area providers who are caring for pregnant and postpartum families. Please don’t hesitate to contact us; we want to hear from you. You will see the term “perinatal” in these pages. We use perinatal to mean the time during pregnancy, birth, and through the first year postpartum.
