Recent studies have shown a link between maternal psychological health and prenatal outcomes. Happy Moms and Happy Babes is a six session psycho-educational group counselling program. Its design provides education for expectant mothers on the subject of potential risks of stress during pregnancy, opportunity to engage in interpersonal learning, a venue to share concerns with other expectant mothers, access to emotional support from qualified professionals, and practice in stress reduction techniques. These educational opportunities are enveloped in the experience of group support. The group counselling manual provides lesson plans and handouts for organizing and facilitating the Happy Moms and Happy Babes Group Program.
