New Mom Support Group

Thursday, April 4, 2024

1:00pm EDT - 2:00pm EDT   Support Groups

Description

This support group meets weekly on Tuesdays at 3 PM ET and Thursdays at 1 PM ET. Are you a new mom/birthing person struggling with anxiety, depression, OCD, or PTSD? You’re not alone. 1 in 5 new or expecting mothers/birthing people suffer from a PMAD (Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorder), otherwise known as postpartum depression. This group provides space for new moms/gestational parents to discuss the honest, real, and hard parts of motherhood – the parts that social media and baby commercials go to great lengths to avoid. The common feelings of guilt, shame, irritability, exhaustion, loneliness, hopelessness, panic, sadness, regret, longing for who you were before you became a mother, and many more. This weekly group is for those who want to find a safe space to share, heal, learn coping skills, and connect with others who are going through similar challenges.

About This Group

  • This virtual group has space for 6 new moms/birthing people to 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 personal pronouns upon group introduction.

Discussion Topics

  • Feeling sad, anxious, overwhelmed, and/or irritable as a new mom
  • Talking about the very real and very hard parts of becoming a mom and having a baby
  • Relationship struggles with partner, friends, mother/mother in law
  • Feelings of loneliness, isolation, regret, and loss of identity
  • Learning ways to ask for help, cope with uncomfortable feelings, and identify moments of connection with baby, partner, and others

Is this Group Right for Me?

This group is for postpartum women/birthing parents who are feeling depressed or anxious, and for those who have a diagnosed perinatal mood or anxiety disorder (PMAD); such as depression, anxiety, PTSD, or OCD. This group is meant to offer a supportive and honest community for new moms/birthing people struggling with motherhood. Tears are welcome.
