Find comfort, validation and the tools you need to thrive during this important life transition.
For new moms, the postpartum period can be an exciting, but also overwhelming and isolating experience. It’s common to feel a range of emotions, from joy and love to anxiety and sadness. Finding comfort and connection during this time is essential to maintaining good mental health and well-being.
Support groups are made up of people who share common challenges. These groups are focused on providing education, resources and tools, with the overall goal of helping you to cope. They provide a safe place for you to express your thoughts and feelings, and to share your experiences if you feel comfortable. Groups often provide reassurance and encouragement. There’s something truly unique about surrounding yourself with others who are experiencing similar challenges as you. Group members often walk away feeling stronger, more capable and hopeful about managing the difficulties that brought them to the group.
Our groups typically range anywhere from 5 to 12 people.
Everyone is welcome! You do not need to be a current client in order to join any of the groups we offer.
