Event Image

Description

Are you struggling with the 4th trimester? You do not have to struggle alone. Join the 4th Trimester Group to gain an understanding of perinatal mood disorders and how to cope with these changes and feelings. The group will provide a safe space to share your post partum struggles and feelings. We will discuss the transition into motherhood or adding another baby to the family, what you need from your support system, and how to cope with the 4th trimester. Group topics include:

  • Post partum depression/baby blues
  • Post partum anxiety
  • Processing birth experience
  • Post partum body changes/body image
  • Support systems
  • Transitioning into motherhood/adding another child to the family

Group members must have had a child in the past year and have the ability to communicate effectively in a group format. Group members cannot have active psychosis, active addiction or active SI/HI symptoms. Talk to your WellSpan OB/GYN or Philhaven provider.
