Welcome to Mamastay

A village of mothers, healthcare providers and more, working together to provide intentional and holistic postpartum support to all mamas. 

Our Mission

At Mamastay, our mission is to provide mamas from all walks of life, with supports necessary for combating the social determinants of health that negatively impact their holistic, postpartum wellness. We take a service and community-centered approach to our work by providing tangible in-home supports, that contribute to less "surviving motherhood" and more "thriving in motherhood".  

Why is intentional and holistic postpartum care for mom important?

What the research tells us about Postpartum Depression...

Research conducted by the CDC, tells us that "1 in 8 women with a recent live birth experience symptoms of postpartum depression".

Experiences that may put some women at a higher risk for depression can include:

  • Stressful live events.

  • Low social support.

  • Previous history of depression.

  • Family history of depression.

  • Difficulty getting pregnant.

  • Being a mom to multiples, like twins or triplets.

  • Being a teen mom.

  • Preterm (before 37 weeks) labor and delivery.

  • Pregnancy and birth complications.

*Postpartum depression can also occur among women with a healthy pregnancy and birth.

A Growing Problem

Postpartum Complications

A pregnancy-related death is the death of a woman while pregnant or within one year of the end of a pregnancy. More than half the pregnancy-related deaths happen after childbirth.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the number of reported pregnancy-related deaths in the United States in 2014 was 18 deaths per 100,000 live births. That's up from 7.2 deaths per 100,000 live births in 1987. Research also shows racial disparities. From 2011 to 2014, the pregnancy-related mortality ratios for black women were more than three times higher than for white women.

So let us bring the Village to...

...YOU!

It takes a village to raise a child...and care for mama, let us be your village!
