Founded by moms, for moms (and dads)

Postpartum Project is founded by two mothers, who are both business women and licensed marriage and family therapists:  Zoe Hicks, LMFT and Ellen Gregory, LMFT.

Zoe Rose Hicks Postpartum ProjectZoe Rose Hicks, LMFT: When Zoe learned that postpartum home visits are common practice across much of Europe, the idea resonated with her — as a marriage and family therapist and as a mother herself. She founded The Postpartum Project to promote a more integrated model of postpartum care through accessible, specialized mental healthcare for new mothers.

The Postpartum Project reflects Zoe’s skills as a therapist and editor as well as her commitment to building a consortium of professionals who share her vision of a more holistic model of postpartum care.

A licensed therapist with a private practice in Brooklyn, Zoe is a member of:

  • The American Association for Marriage and Family Therapists
  • The Women’s Mental Health Consortium in New York City
  • Postpartum Support International
  • The International Marce Society for Perinatal Mental Health.

Zoe holds an M.A. in Clinical Psychology and B.A. in Literature and Creative Writing from the University of California, Santa Cruz and Antioch University. Zoe is an adjunct professor at Adelphi University. She teaches the diagnosis and treatment of Postpartum Depression.

When Zoe is not working, she is chasing after her 5 year old daughter, Tzippy. More about Zoe at zoerosehicks.com
