Live chat: National Premature Infant Health Coalition to discuss maternal mental health issues affecting preemie mothers

The National Premature Infant Health Coalition will be hosting a live chat to discuss mental health issues affecting mothers of premature babies on its Facebook page Thursday, Nov. 14 at 1 p.m.

The chat, which takes place during Prematurity Awareness Month,  will feature maternal mental health experts who have worked with mothers that have experienced depression, anxiety and trauma after giving birth to preemies, as well as parents with first-hand accounts.

Mothers of premature babies are at a higher risk for maternal mental health disorders, it is important they find the support and help they need and to connect with others. RSVP for the NPIHC Facebook chat here.
