“Mor I centrum” is a novel organization which aims to guide and support women with postpartum depression . With a scientific approach based on the social constructivism, this project seeks to clarify the way this organization address the topic of postpartum depression, and how they address women through their teaching resources. By considering “Mor I Centrum” as a health promotion practice, we also seek to clarify their view of the health promotion conception, and how this conception affects their practice. As research method, we use Norman Fairclougs Critical discourse analysis. Due to this analysis, we were able to find two superior discourses, which were relevant to our thesis statement. These two discourses, individualization and change/modification, are discussed further with emphasis on showing how Mor i Centrum works as health promoters. In the light of this, we included two health promotion theories “Det åbne sundhedsbegreb” and “Empowerment”. We were able to reach these following conclusions. Through health promotion theories, we concluded that Mor I Centrum in fact, do work as health promoters by enhancing women’s capabilities toward reaching their own goals. However, regarding their teaching materials, they do not work as health promoters, because their materials lack an environmental aspect, that is essential to health promotion. We found that Mor i Centrum address the issue about postpartum depression in a problematic manner, which isn’t consistent with our scientific approach
