Moving Beyond Depression Program for Mothers


Maternal depression affects up to 45% of all pregnant, postpartum and parenting women in home visiting programs. Cincinnati’s Every Child Succeeds Scientific Director Dr. Robert Ammerman has developed and deployed the Moving Beyond Depression™ (MBD) maternal depression treatment program, to help reverse the downward spiral that results from clinical maternal depression. 

With us today from the Children’s Hospital Medical Center to discuss treating maternal depression are Dr. Judy Van Ginkel, professor of Pediatrics and president of Every Child Succeeds;  Amy Bodley, Every Child Succeeds clinical counselor; and Pediatric Psychologist Dr. Robert Ammerman, Scientific director of Every Child Succeeds.
