Babywearing and Postpartum Mental Illness: A Resource for Educators was created by Christie J.E. Chapman, LCSW and ABE for BWI of Southwestern CT. Her document explains the basics of PPMI, the empirical data discussing ways in which babywearing can help, and signs for educators to watch for and ways to help.
Some of our older research-related documents, including archived issues of the (no longer published) BWI newsletter “Carrying On”, are also available on the Research page.
