Mama Mental Health

Postpartum Therapeutic Support Group

Are you a new mom? Sleep deprived, overwhelmed, sad and lonely? Do you feel like there is no end in sight and just thinking that increases your feelings of guilt and shame more? I assure you, that you are not alone! Postpartum Depression is a common experience in new moms (and dads!) but luckily there are ways to navigate and cope in order to get back to the best version of yourself. 


This PPD therapy group is a 6 week series that starts with providing education on topics around mental health postpartum including depression and anxiety and the number of feelings that come with it. We then take the opportunity to share experiences as a group to promote healing and understanding from those who are experiencing the same things. Using CBT, we will discuss how our feelings and thoughts are interconnected as well as the impact that they have on us in all aspects of life. We will also learn a variety of coping strategies to help with coping through our moments of worry, fear, guilt etc. And lastly, we will be building relationships and connections with others who are also experiencing similar things.
