Pregnancy & Postpartum Support MN began in 2006 when Suzanne Swanson, Ph.D., a St. Paul psychologist, formed the group with other area mental health professionals with a passion for helping moms and families. The group created the first resource list specific to perinatal mental health. All perinatal specialists on this list are vetted by the Board of Directors and required to demonstrate education and experience treating pregnant and postpartum parents and many also have additional competency with related topics, such as perinatal loss, infertility, and trauma.
In 2015, PPSM became the Minnesota State Chapter with Postpartum Support International. We are proud to be the 5th State Chapter in the country, and further, build our relationship with PSI!
In 2021 PPSM refreshed our logo to reflect the values and vision of our organization. Our logo has been designed to convey FAMILY + BALANCE + SUPPORT. As an organization, we aim to support all folx desiring parenthood, no matter how their family comes to fruition. We offer connection to care, resources, and advocacy to support the mental health needs of people TTC, pregnant/birthing people, lost parents, pregnancy after loss, and parenting transitions with young children.⠀
