Every Saturday morning. We’re currently meeting in the Leeward Oahu area at 9:30 -11:00 a.m.
If you’re struggling as a new mom; feeling disconnected from your baby, feeling too anxious to sleep even when baby is sleeping, flying into anger over things that never would have bothered you before, feeling overwhelmed or like a bad mother this group is for you. Meet other moms who are feeling similar things and make your way back to feeling like yourself in a supportive and emotionally safe place. No judgment or mommy competition here.

Aloha moms, families in Hawaii
Isn’t there something about September that makes you want to sign up for…something?
How about a support group for those of you going through pregnancy and postpartum challenges?
It doesn’t have to be depression or anxiety per se, but those feelings overwhelm or “what did I get myself into?” or “why aren’t I connecting with my baby?” Wouldn’t you feel relieved to talk to other moms feeling this way with their new little one(s) too?
A new group(s) is forming now, maximum 8 parents. Infants are welcome. Wednesday evening or Saturdays before noon.
Call or text us at 392-7985.
Our support group is running on Tuesday mornings at 10 a.m. in the Airport/Mapunapuna area. Call 392-7985 for location and group leader information.
Find relief and knowing you are not alone. Meet with others having pregnancy or postpartum anxiety, depression and other challenges. You’ll find compassion, understanding, information, support, validation and more. Babies welcome.
