I am now offering a support group for postpartum mothers experiencing depression and/or anxiety. These disorders, which can occur any time in the first year of your baby’s life, are the most common complications of childbirth. This support group will be an opportunity for mothers to:
- Connect and share support with others moms experiencing postpartum emotional difficulties to reduce feelings of isolation and hopelessness;
- Learn about what causes postpartum disorders, treatment options, and self-care strategies; and
- Practice coping skills (including mindfulness exercises), as well as improving their bond with their baby as they recover.
The Postpartum Emotional Recovery Circle will meet at Oak Creek Counseling Center in Pleasant Hill.
Day/Time: Saturdays from 12:00 to 1:30pm (six week commitment for new members)
Cost: Sliding scale from $15-$25 per session, based on income
To register: Call 1-888-637-7404 ext. 30 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
