Community Infant Program (CIP) services are available in across Boulder County.
Community Infant Program is a mental health program for pregnant women and families with children ages birth through the preschool years. Our team of psychologists, therapists and public health nurses work exclusively with infants and their families to offer comprehensive, trauma-informed, culturally sensitive, relationship-based interventions.
The time before and after the birth of a child is very special. It is also a time that women are vulnerable to postpartum mood and anxiety disorders due to the dramatic shifts in hormones that occur. Some women don’t ever feel depressed but a range of other emotions such as irritability, difficulty concentrating, disturbing thoughts about hurting your baby, anger, overwhelm, sadness, panic or racing thoughts.
