Postpartum Mental Health Planning


The postpartum period is a huge transition for new parents, and because of this there's an increased risk of mental health struggles like perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (PMADs).

There are things you can think through and prepare for proactively to help support your mental health during this time. Lindsey and Mandy will help you understand what to expect during postpartum, how to manage your expectations and the expectations of friends and family, and what resources are available to help you along the way.

Your Instructors: Lindsey Henke + Mandy Wannarka


Mandy is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker who received her Masters in Social Work degree from the University of St Thomas/St Catherine University. Mandy’s passion for psychotherapy comes from a deep desire to bear witness to people’s triumphs and struggles and help them to find healing. Her interest in perinatal work originated when she began her graduate internship on a women’s health floor at a metro hospital and continued through her work at another area hospital supporting families who experienced admissions to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Mandy is the founder of Mindful Wellbeing MN and volunteers as a board member with Pregnancy and Postpartum Support Minnesota.

Lindsey (also known as The Motherhood Therapist) has been providing clinical psychotherapy services to women and families since 2008. She specializes in grief and mental health struggles that often accompany reproductive trauma, and is a certified Perinatal Mental Health (PMH-C) provider with specific training in perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, pregnancy loss and pregnancy after loss. She also provides training to other professionals in these areas, and is the Founder and Executive Director of Pregnancy After Loss Support, an online magazine and peer-to-peer support service.
