About National Maternal Mental Health Hotline

Pregnancy and a new baby can bring a range of emotions. Many new moms feel overwhelmed, sad, anxious, or exhausted at different times during their pregnancy or after the baby is born.

Sometimes these feelings go away on their own. But if these feelings last for more than two weeks, and make it hard to carry out daily tasks, like caring for themselves or their family, a mom may have perinatal depression or anxiety. These are common and treatable health conditions during or after pregnancy. And that's why a new mom, or those supporting them, should reach out right away for help.

The National Maternal Mental Health Hotline provides free and confidential emotional support and resources through local and telehealth providers and support groups through phone and text services to pregnant or postpartum persons and their loved ones. Funded by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), the National Maternal Mental Health Hotline is available across the United States 24 hours a day and seven (7) days a week. The National Maternal Mental Health Hotline staff are professional counselors who speak English and Spanish, providing additional interpreter services in 60 languages.

The National Maternal Mental Health Hotline can help. Call or text 1-833-TLC-MAMA (1-833-852-6262). TTY users can use a preferred relay service or dial 711 and 1-833-852-6262.
