Postpartum Depression Support Group - Supporting Motherhood and More

Being a mother is one of the hardest jobs anyone can do, struggling with mental health can make a hard job seem impossible. Adjusting to motherhood can be very overwhelming whether you are experiencing stress, baby blues or postpartum depression/anxiety. You are not alone, our groups are here for you.

We offer support groups for women who are experiencing unexpected and challenging emotions during pregnancy and throughout the first year. These can include:

  • You feel overwhelmed. Like “I can’t do this.”
  • You feel irritated or angry. You feel resentment toward your baby, or your partner, or your friends.
  • You know something is wrong. You may not know you have a perinatal mood disorder, but you know the way you are feeling is NOT right.
  • You worry that if you reach out for help people will judge you.
  • You may be wondering if you were supposed to be a mother in the first place.

This is an open group, you are welcome to attend at any time, at no cost to you. Reservations are preferred but not required. For specific group dates and times please call our support line or check BayCare classes and events.
