Beyond Baby Blues: An Early Motherhood Support Group
Pregnancy and new motherhood do not just consist of endless joy and bliss; they are also times of stressful challenges and life transitions. Mood and anxiety disorders are the most common complications of pregnancy and childbirth - up to 20 percent of expectant and new mothers will experience significant anxiety or mood disturbance during pregnancy and in the first year after delivery. Emotional support is one of the keys to recovery from maternal depression and anxiety. In this group, new moms will recieve the support and understanding they need to survive and thrive in this new stage of life. Infants up to 6 months of age welcome. A voluntary donation of up to $5 per meeting will be accepted to help fund the group. Reservations recommended.
