Resources

This is a page with information about resources that were helpful to me during my crazy ride.

This is the program that helped me saved my life (in Toronto):

Women’s College Hospital Reproductive Life Stages Program
They have therapists, groups and psychiatrists who all specialize in women’s mental health during the pregnancy and postpartum years. (and it’s all completely covered by OHIP). It is a wonderful and caring office to visit.

Phone them at 416-323-6400 ext. 5635 or ask your doctor to submit the Reproductive Life Stages Referral Form.


Here is a link to my custom mood charts. Message me if you’d like to know how I create these using google docs and google forms.
