It Takes A Village Day Program
"IT TAKES A VILLAGE" PROGRAM
The perinatal period, which extends from pregnancy through one year postpartum, can be exhilarating, exhausting, and everything in between. Adapting to a new baby and all that comes with such a significant life change can be a source of stress and strain for many. Perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (PMADs) are the most common complication of pregnancy and childbirth, affecting approximately 15 to 20 percent of birthing parents.
Thrive’s perinatal mental health specialists are passionate and skilled at helping parents achieve optimal well-being and joyfully embrace parenthood with confidence. We believe that what is best for you is also best for your baby, your family, and the community as a whole.
Led by an interdisciplinary clinical team trained in treating PMADs, our “It Takes A Village” program offers comprehensive and compassionate care catered to the delicate needs and experiences that can develop during the perinatal period. Clients can expect a carefully curated combination of group therapy and community connection, individual therapy, psychoeducation, experiential classes, and more. The program is thoughtfully designed to teach coping skills, self-care strategies, and mindfulness techniques so that clients can heal past traumas, better manage their PMAD symptoms, and enrich their day-to-day lives. Babies are welcome and encouraged to join!
Thrive’s “It Takes A Village” program is available to clients three to five days a week on Mondays through Fridays from 10:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. PT (lunch break included). This unique offering includes:

Our “It Takes a Village” perinatal program is intended for caregivers of all identities and backgrounds struggling with perinatal mental health and embraces family systems of all kinds.

Thrive’s “It Takes A Village” program is available to clients three to five days a week on Mondays through Fridays from 10:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. PT (lunch break included).
We are happy to communicate with educational institutions and workplaces to advocate for the care you need and coordinate arrangements that make it possible for you to receive treatment with minimal disruption to your daily obligations. However, if your school or employer is unaccommodating or if the “It Takes A Village” program schedule simply is not a fit for you, we recommend seeking support through our outpatient perinatal services.
The first step is reaching out and expressing interest in the program so that we can schedule a time for you to speak with a licensed Thrive clinician. During this telehealth assessment, sharing your experience will give our team a better idea of what you are struggling with and how we can best support you. Next, our team will explore admissions, enrollment, and the program in more detail with you and answer any questions you may have. From there, an individualized treatment plan will be recommended and our team will work with you to schedule a program start date and coordinate your care.
Everyone’s healing journey is unique. The duration of one’s treatment is dependent on their personal progress and preferences. All clients are provided individualized treatment plans and are encouraged to continue treatment until they feel they have reached optimal well-being and can joyfully embrace parenthood with confidence. Often upon completing the program, clients are encouraged to continue their care through outpatient perinatal services to receive ongoing support and further foster healing.
Thrive works diligently to secure coverage for your care. We currently partner with many major insurance providers. Our team is also happy to help obtain a single case agreement for your Thrive treatment experience if needed.
Before beginning any treatment or services with Thrive, benefits will be verified and an estimate of the cost will be provided.
Absolutely. In fact, if you are experiencing mental health issues while pregnant, we highly encourage you to seek help as soon as possible. Doing so gives you an opportunity to understand your symptoms, learn coping skills, receive support from our healing community, and feel better before baby arrives. Decreasing the impact of your PMAD is best for you, your baby, and your family.
We recognize that non-birthing parents can also experience mental health struggles during the perinatal period. In fact, one out of every 10 non-birthing parents experiences a PMAD. At Thrive, we are committed to nurturing the well-being of the entire family and therefore apply a family systems approach to perinatal mental health care. Non-birthing parents are welcome to participate in the program and if you’re interested in having a partner or other closely involved caregivers join you, please express this to our team upon inquiry and we will work with you to accommodate your request.
Experiencing a perinatal loss can be extremely difficult for hopeful parents and therapy can certainly help one process their grief, cope with emotions, and foster healing. For those who have recently lost a baby, it can be challenging to participate in the “It Takes A Village” program’s group therapy in which they see and hear other parents with their little ones.
For those going through perinatal loss and grief, Thrive encourages and offers individual, couples, and family therapy through our outpatient perinatal services.
We also host a free weekly virtual support group for those struggling with miscarriage, stillbirth, SIDS, early infant death, molar pregnancies, and other perinatal complications.
Discover how to heal from perinatal mental health issues and step forward on the path of parenting with pride, confidence, and joy.
