Postpartum Support Group
Having a baby can be both exciting and very overwhelming. Most mothers experience the baby blues and will subside in a few weeks. Sometimes these feelings may not go away. In this case mothers may be experiencing depression and/or anxiety symptoms. Come and get the support you need in a safe, non-judgmental environment. Hearing what other mothers are experiencing may help you get through this difficult time.
Baptist Health offers a free support group for mothers of newborns (biological or adoptive) who are experiencing any type of pregnancy or postpartum mood issue. This may include, but is not limited to sadness, tearfulness, excessive worry, difficulty sleeping, changes in appetite, irritability, lack of bonding, anxiety and any other change in mood or behavior. You will receive support from others with similar experiences as well as be taught skills to help alleviate symptoms.
This is an 1.5 hour session.
This group is for any mother experiencing perinatal mood & anxiety disorder during pregnancy or anytime during the baby's first year. Your infant is welcome, but we do not have babysitting for toddlers so just your babes in arms please.
Due to limited seating, registration is preferred.
To attend you do not have to be a Baptist Health patient-all are welcome to attend our group!
Group is facilitated by staff with special training in perinatal mood disorders.
