It’s normal for mothers to feel overjoyed as well as overwhelmed. Whether you have one child or five, it’s not easy for anyone to juggle the many responsibilities of being a parent. (Especially soon after the considerable experience of labor and birth.) Many changes at once often bring many emotions at once. In fact, most women go through the “baby blues” for a few days or weeks following the baby’s arrival. However, some moms experience more serious postpartum depression or anxiety.
We are here to help. If you or someone you know is having a difficult time, contact us at 262-243-7408.
All mothers and family members are also welcome to join us at The Birth Hospital for free postpartum support—one on one or in a group setting. Our informal and confidential gathering is led by Postpartum Support International trained facilitator Ann Grauer, IBCLC, AdvCD/PCD(DONA).
Wednesdays at 9:00 a.m. in The Birth Hospital’s Family Room
