Having Another Baby After a PMAD Support Group

Friday, June 7, 2024

2:00pm EDT - 3:00pm EDT   Support Groups

Description

This support group meets weekly on Fridays at 2 PM ET. Having a baby after a PMAD is a personal choice. Some moms/parents decide on “one and done,” and others decide they want another baby. Although we know that statistically, women/birthing people who had a PMAD during their previous perinatal experience are at a higher risk of experiencing one again – this is not always the case. In fact, there are many things that a woman/birthing parent can do to set the stage for a different outcome. However, it does mean you should consider taking precautions now to help minimize or prevent a PMAD from occurring again. With the right support, resources, and skills, you can better manage your pregnancy and postpartum experience the next time.

About This Group

  • This virtual group has space for 6 thinking about having another, expecting, or new second (3rd or 4th or 5th!) -time moms/birthing people join.
  • This group is drop-in, so there is no obligation to attend every week. (But you are welcome to!)
  • This group is open to all LGBTQIA+ people. We ask that you share your preferred pronouns upon group introduction.

Discussion Topics

  • Feeling unprepared or anxious about having another baby
  • Building your support system - including your partner, family, therapist, healthcare provider, etc.
  • Taking charge and feeling empowered and confident in your overall perinatal experience
  • Creating a plan to ensure you get the right support you need to have a different and better experience this time around
  • Learning warning signs that you are struggling again and need extra support

Is this Group Right for Me?

This group is for women/birthing parents who had a PMAD with their previous child and are thinking about having another child, are currently pregnant, or are recently postpartum. If you feel anxious or depressed about having another baby and/or having a PMAD again, experience a return of symptoms during pregnancy or postpartum with your second, curious about what you can do to create a different outcome for yourself this time, looking for a community of other women/birthing people who are going through a similar experience as your own, then this group is for you.
