Specialized Support Coordinators

SPECIALIZED SUPPORT COORDINATORS

PSI offers support, information, and resources to these specialized populations: Families impacted by Postpartum Psychosis, Adoptive Parents, Birth Mothers, Dads, Grandparents, Hyperemesis Gravidarum, Maternal Near Miss Survivors, Military Families, NICU parents, Spanish-Speaking Families, and Arabic-speaking families. We have developed the specialized coordinators in response to a growing number of requests from families. Specialized Coordinators work in conjunction with local PSI Support Coordinators to offer support and resources.

Postpartum Psychosis Support Coordinators:

Michele and Felice provide support and assistance to women and families of women who are experiencing a postpartum psychosis but who do not need emergency support.

Adoptive Parents Coordinator:

Mood and Anxiety Disorders during the postpartum period are experienced by more than just a birthing parent.  Parents who have adopted a baby/child can experience challenges with mood and anxiety as well.  PSI has a Specialized Coordinator who has special knowledge and understanding of the difficulties these parents may be experiencing. We invite them to reach out to Lindsay.

Hyperemesis Gravidarum Coordinator:

Pregnancy can come with rather unpleasant symptoms. Hyperemesis gravidarum (HG) is a pregnancy complication that is characterized by severe nausea, vomiting, weight loss, and possibly dehydration. This is not simply “bad morning sickness”, but it is all too often minimized or left undiagnosed.  Because this is not a common symptom, it can feel isolating and frightening. Talking to someone who has been been there can be very helpful, and our HG Specialized Coordinator is here for that exact purpose.

Maternal Near Miss Coordinators:

A maternal near miss is an event where a woman nearly dies due to pregnancy or childbirth related complications. The events are often unexpected and may leave the survivor feeling isolated and alone. If you, or a loved one, are a maternal near miss survivor looking for support please reach out to Tomeka or Victoria.  You may also request to join the Maternal Near Miss Survivors Support Group on Facebook, which is run by peer support volunteers independently of PSI.

Military Families Coordinators:

PSI has Support Coordinators to support military families of several branches. Please visit our Support Military Families page for more information.

Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU):

The experience of having a baby in the NICU can be frightening, isolating and overwhelming.  Parents who have a baby in the NICU or are now home after a NICU stay are invited to reach out to our Specialized Coordinator for NICU parents.
