Postpartum Resources



El Camino Women’s Medical Group: we’re always here for you:


Concerns about depression:

  • MOMS program at El Camino Hospital (ECH)
  • You can also call the office and ask for a list of therapists we recommend- (650) 396-8110
  • More severe forms of depression after birth can lead to postpartum psychosis, which is very rare. This is an emergency because it can quickly get worse and put a woman or others in danger. Some of the symptoms are
    • Hearing or seeing things that aren’t there
    • Thoughts of suicide or harming the baby

   In that case- call 911 for emergency medical care. For other resources, call:

  • The national suicide hotline at 1-800-273-TALK (1-800-273-8255)
  • National child abuse hotline at 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453)
