This post shares some information on pregnancy, neighborhoods, and degree of sadness based on responses that PowerMoms like you have shared with us. The more PowerMoms we have, the more we learn from each other.

Terms to know: The Area Deprivation Index (ADI) is a tool that researchers use to figure out how much economic and social disadvantages exist in certain neighborhoods. It helps them see and compare the difficulties that various communities or neighborhoods deal with.

Pregnancy is a very important journey, and it comes with a lot of different feelings. The place where a mom-to-be lives can affect how she feels emotionally. Here, we look at how neighborhood ADI relate to the feeling of sadness, and we’re getting insights from amazing PowerMoms in our community.

This initial data pushes us to work together and create a caring environment where every PowerMom’s emotional well-being matters a lot. The more information we collect, the more we can see if these trends continue or change.
