We’re continuing group support weekly, on Tuesday evenings from 6:30-8:00 p.m.
Meet other moms in the same or similar boat, lean on one another, learn from an experienced/recovered mom and each other. You may feel more understood than you have so far, dealing with this condition. You will feel hope. Many people think a group about depression (PPD or other depression) might be sad and…well, depressing, but it’s not.
Have your feelings validated, feel understood, supported and not judged. Give a call for more details, daily from 8 am — 8 pm. 392-7985
2018, Day 2. (1/2/2018) Support Group Tuesday
Four moms and I/us/PPDsupportHI met this Tuesday evening from 6:30-8 p.m. to reconnect after the holidays and all the stressors and positives.
Next week–the dads’ experiences. Or rather, the dads’ responses to the moms’, after the moms’ first person experiences. This will include a couple of videos. Maybe you want to join us next Tuesday. Give us a call for location details. :D
Group has been running Tuesday evenings since September 5, 6:30-8 pm in the Salt Lake area.
Next meeting is December 12, then we take a break until January 2, 2018. 6:30-8 pm. Call for exact location and more information. :)
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.
Call 392-7985 for more information, support and location of the group.

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.
