Are you feeling irritable, anxious or overwhelmed? Are you crying frequently? Do you need support and are unable to find it? Do you have a history of anxiety and/or depression?
If you answered "yes" to one or more of the questions above, you are not alone. Postpartum mood disorders affect up to 20 percent of new mothers and are very treatable. Join our free virtual support group for new mothers to share experiences and get support.
The group offers education and support for women suffering "baby blues" symptoms, postpartum depression and/or anxiety.
Topics addressed may include:
- Feelings of isolation
- How to seek support
- Issues related to postpartum mood disorders
- Parenting struggles
- Professional referrals
- Suggestions on how to cope
- What have others done
We also offer a support group for couples. Please go to Postpartum Support Group for Couples for more information.
This support group is led by licensed clinical social worker Veronica James. James has a master's degree in social work and more than 17 years of experience working with the obstetric and postpartum population.
