Guidance Center, Neiman Marcus Partner To Help Moms


All moms deserve some pampering, but when you’re a mother who is experiencing postpartum depression, a day out dedicated to your well-being is a much-needed healing experience.

This fall, the place of healing was Neiman Marcus in Roosevelt Field. The renowned retailer, which is a dedicated partner and supporter of North Shore Child & Family Guidance Center, offered a “Beauty Master Class” for several moms who are clients of the Diane Goldberg Maternal Depression Program. The mothers were treated to a personalized makeup application from two representatives from lilah b., a natural line of beauty products made in Italy.

“The lilah b. reps were just wonderful,” Vanessa McMullan, supervisor at the Guidance Center’s Marks Family Right from the Start 0-3+ Center in Manhasset, said. “They talked to the moms and helped them choose the right makeup for their skin.” The mothers also went home with a gift bag of products from lilah b.

McMullan also expressed her gratitude to the staff at Neiman Marcus, which has partnered with the Guidance Center for the past four years, offering a variety of beauty events and also a mentoring conference for some of our teen girl clients.

“Neiman Marcus had a special room set up just for us, with extra help to care for the babies that came,” McMullan said. “All of the moms loved being together and getting some TLC. It was a perfect day.”

“One of the pillars of our company is supporting the communities where Neiman Marcus stores are found,” Doris Wilshere, vice president and general manager of Neiman Marcus in Roosevelt Field, said. “We are thankful for the relationship that we have built with North Shore Child and Family Guidance Center over the four years since our store opened. We applaud the Guidance Center for the support they provide to the many Long Island families that rely on resources like the Maternal Depression Program to live happier and healthier lives.”

Neiman Marcus will be hosting more events for the Guidance Center’s maternal depression clients later this month and for the foreseeable future. To find out more, contact Vanessa McMullan at or call 516-484-3174 ext. 415.
