My Wish For Moms

Let’s get as many people talking about postpartum depression as women who suffer from it each year. Post your own wish for moms and help break the silence on postpartum depression and anxiety.

Meet the AHN center dedicated to the well-being of moms and babies.

We believe so strongly in the emotional health of moms that we built a facility dedicated to it - the Alexis Joy D’Achille Center for Perinatal Mental Health. It features a unique intensive outpatient program that treats women struggling with postpartum depression and anxiety with a focus on strengthening the bond between mom and baby. Our program at Allegheny Health Network (AHN) provides support for moms and their families – the first of its kind in western Pennsylvania and one of only a handful in the country.

All of her. All of her life.

Nearly 8,000 babies are born at Allegheny Health Network (AHN) hospitals each year. We care for women as they make their journey through pregnancy, delivery, and adjusting to having a new little one in their lives.

Our goal is to make Pittsburgh the safest place for moms and their new babies. To help make that happen, please consider making a donation today.

AHN Women and Chrissy Teigen have launched a social cause initiative to reduce the stigma of postpartum depression and anxiety — #MyWishForMoms. Chrissy recently spent a day at the AHN Women Alexis Joy D’Achille Center for Perinatal Mental Health in Pittsburgh to meet with patients and tour the facility.

Chrissy & Heather: A postpartum depression story

This is Heather, a real AHN patient and mom of two who sought out help from the AHN Women’s Behavioral Health Program when she realized she was experiencing something beyond the “baby blues.”

LEARN MORE

Chrissy and Heather met for the first time on-camera and just talked, openly and honestly, and we got to hear what they had to say. Their hopes, their fears and their experiences as moms. It was emotional, insightful, and educational. And now we want to share their stories.
