Maternal Mental Health
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.
The Mindful Connections group 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.
We have previously offered face to face peer group support which we have moved to a online virtual group. This online peer support group meets on a secure platforms synchronously twice a week. This virtual support group facilitates peer relationships , natural mentoring and reduces social isolation.
