You need support. Period.
Our groups are here to provide all mothers and birthgivers the support needed to help with your mental health during and after pregnancy.
We believe the best kind of peer facilitator is someone who understands the transitions, joys, difficulties, and daily life as a mother. Who would be better fit than, another MOM!
All groups are led by volunteer moms who are trained in how to provide a safe space and facilitate a successful peer support group. At this time, our Peer Support Groups are online only, with phone dial-in options. To accommodate the busy schedule of a mom, group dates and times vary with weekly & bi-weekly sessions. Choose one that best fits your schedule and personal preference!
Please Note: Our Peer Support Groups are NOT an alternative to therapy or medical treatment, but works as an added opportunity for encouragement and support.
Please Contact: The Peer Support Line at 678-302-4006 or Kim Roberts, our Maternal Mental Health Coordinator, via email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance with registration and additional information.
