We're here to help

Are you Disconnected, Anxious, Sad?  Not yourself?

Any of these symptoms, and many more, could indicate that you have a form of perinatal mood or anxiety disorder, such as postpartum depression. While many parents experience some mild mood changes during or after the birth of a child, some experience more significant symptoms of depression or anxiety. 
Please know that with informed care you can prevent a worsening of these symptoms and can fully recover.
Our next support group starts in early June. Ask about our self-help guide.
