About Us

Mission Statement:

The mission of the Maternal Health Alliance of Maine is to support women facing maternal challenges through awareness, collaboration, education and communication.

Vision Statement:

Maternal Health Alliance of Maine will create a support network for women in Maine.   This “village” will provide a place for women to connect, share experiences with Postpartum Depression and become a beacon of support.   We will host provider-led support groups for women facing maternal challenges, raise awareness, and bring women and families together through communication and education.

History:

The Maternal Health Alliance of Maine was formed in 2015, inspired by women and mothers needing support.  We spent 18 months laying the framework for our "village": building our board of directors and bylaws, training volunteers and raising community awareness. In 2017 we launched our first support group at USM in Portland, and re-launched our website, which is now full of resources to help women in our local community.
