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.

Some grandparents will experience a recurrence of a Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorder after the birth of her or his grandchild. PSI’s Specialized Coordinator for Grandparents provides understanding and support for grandparents who find themselves struggling.
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.

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.
