Resource Guide

WELCOME TO THE MARYLAND 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.

The following groups offer support at no charge for women who are at risk of or are experiencing distress such as isolation, depression, anxiety, fearful thoughts, insomnia, trauma, and other difficulties during pregnancy or postpartum. Support groups provide a safe and caring place for connection and recovery. Please call or email for more information.

Postpartum Support Group
Some new moms suffer from feeling overwhelmed, hopeless, panicky, out of control, sad, or they regret having a baby. The area’s first support group for new moms who are dealing with symptoms like these will offer women a chance to share their experiences and fears while learning coping skills. Most importantly, they’ll see that they are not alone and have support.
