Women's Mental and Reproductive Health
Pregnancy is often a time of great promise and excitement. However, it can also represent a time in a woman's life that is fraught with difficulties. Some struggle trying to get pregnant. Others suffer unimaginable losses when they lose a pregnancy or a baby. Others are able to deliver successfully, but then are caught off-guard when they are hit by postpartum depression and/or anxiety. These difficulties not only affect women, but they also affect the partners who are sharing the journey. Dr. Sternweis-Yang has devoted many of her recent continuing education hours to extensive training in this area. In 2016, Dr. Sternweis-Yang took a 2-day certification training course through Postpartum Support International in the area of "Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders." Dr. Sternweis-Yang is also a member of Postpartum Support International and Resolve: The National Infertility Association.
