Paige Bellenbaum, LMSW

Paige Bellenbaum, LMSW is the Founding Director and Chief External Relations Officer of The Motherhood Center. The Motherhood Center provides clinical treatment to pregnant and postpartum women experiencing perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (PMADs), otherwise known as postpartum depression. Paige experienced severe postpartum depression and anxiety after the birth of her son, and when she finally got treatment many months later, she became angry that nobody was talking about postpartum depression. She went on to co-author New York State Legislation encouraging screening for PMADs and education for all new mothers and became a fierce advocate for PMAD screening, education and treatment. For many years, Paige has shared her story via print, radio and TV including the Today Show, The Huffington Post, NPR, Women’s Health Magazine, The Wall Street Journal and more, in an effort to raise awareness around PMADs.
