Our Team

 

Our Story

Dr. Jill Garrett is a mom, program director and founding psychologist of The Motherhood Space. After delivering her first child eight years ago, she recognized the need for an enhancement in emotional support for mothers in the perinatal period in our community.

Baptist Health’s Maternal Mental Health program was born out of this concept and has since supported a multitude of mothers and families as they cope with perinatal mood and anxiety disorders through individual psychotherapy and psychiatric services.
