INTRODUCTION: Don't Throw The Baby Out With The Bathwater!
Are you feeling a bit overwhelmed during your pregnancy or the birth of your baby? You're not alone! According to Postpartum Support International (PSI) postpartum depression is the #1 complication from childbirth. Research shows that 50% - 70% of newborn moms and 10% of newborn dads will experience some type of postpartum mood disorder. This disorder can occur anytime in pregnancy, or during the first year after giving birth. Some women experience depression while others have extreme anxiety.
Baptist Health's Women's Services 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. Here, you will receive support from others with similar experiences as well as be taught skills to help alleviate symptoms.
This will be an on-going group held inside the Williams YMCA. There is no charge but space is limited so please register each time you wish to attend.
You do not have to be a Baptist Health patient-all are welcome to attend our group!
This 1.5 hour session is held from 6:30-8:00 pm. See calendar for specific dates.
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 to attend with you. There is childcare available during the support group.
Due to limited seating, registration is preferred.
