Parting Ways with Postpartum: A Support Group, is a safe, shared space for moms struggling with postpartum depression and anxiety to come together and get the support they deserve. In a circle of safety and compassion, new moms will meet with a licensed clinical psychologist to build each other up, share their experiences, and gather tools for recovery. Postpartum depression and anxiety are highly treatable conditions that affect many new moms. Let’s gather together to break through the shame, confusion, and fear and ultimately part ways with postpartum.
The Support Group will meet on Mondays from 11:30am-12:45pm. Moms within the first year postpartum are encouraged to attend and young babies (pre-crawlers) are welcome to join. While you will get the most out of this support group if you can attend weekly and for at least four consecutive weeks, in order to reach as many moms as possible, this group is offered in a weekly, drop-in style. If possible, please call ahead of time to sign up, but if you forget don’t worry – just swing on by for a spot in our circle of connected, compassionate mamas.
