The emotional experience after delivery is different for every woman. Hormones, sleep, nutrition, and stress can impact your ability to cope and feel like yourself again. More than 15% of new mothers report difficulties in coping and adjusting after having a baby and up to 1 in 5 women experience postpartum mood disorder.
Mindful Connections welcomes women who find the challenges of motherhood to be different than they expected, those who are surprised at the complexity of their experience and want a safe place to think out loud and to learn more about this unique time of life.
Who is it for
- Postpartum with a child under the age of 18 months.
- Willing to engage in group discussions; provide and receive feedback.
- Not experiencing postpartum psychosis (or being treated for same).
