Mom’s Voice

Mom’s Voice

Becoming a mother can be an exciting, rewarding, and huge undertaking all at the same time. One in seven women will struggle with symptoms of Postpartum Depression (PPD) or Postpartum Anxiety (PPA). Mom’s Voice is a support group that welcomes mothers who are or think they are struggling with Postpartum Depression and/or Anxiety to a safe, confidential, and non-judgmental space to learn and process together. By joining this support group, you have a chance to gain evidenced based coping tools, develop connections with other mothers, and benefit from the reassurance that you are not alone, there is hope, and with treatment, you will be well.

Mom’s Voice will be held weekly on Wednesdays from 5:00pm-6:30pm for six weeks. This is a virtual group starting September 7. Different topics will be discussed related to coping tools, self-care, what to expect, questions to ask your provider when considering medication, communicating with your partner, attachment with your baby, and healing through art. This will be considered a closed group where we offer up to 10 mothers to participate as group members.

Session 2: Understanding Postpartum Depression & Anxiety and Treatment Options

    • Learning to implement coping tools to address intrusive/ worrisome thoughts, flight or fight responses, shame, and feelings of overwhelm.

Session 4: Transitioning from Partners to Parents

  • Learn how to effectively use clear communication to identify and advocate for our own needs for self-care, support partners on their quest for self-care, and reframe challenging times to deepen the bond.

Session 5: Mindfully Attaching with your Baby while you are Healing

  • Grieve, normalize, and accept the feelings of boredom, frustration, and loss of the freedom we had in our old lives.

    • Discuss and learn tools to employ when struggling with acceptance and grace for ourselves in this new season.

Session 6: Healing through Creative Arts

  • As we close, we will focus on the healing power of art and the ways that we can turn our pain into a work of beauty, something we can be proud of and share with others, if we choose.
