Postpartum Education and Support and the Durham Women’s Clinic are now offering a bi-monthly support group for moms and pregnant women who are experiencing depression or anxiety.

For many years, Postpartum Education and Support has offered its Moms Supporting Moms support group in Raleigh. The new group now expands its reach into Durham. It will start meeting April 20.

The support group is free, peer-led and judgment-free. It meets in a confidential and safe environment for sharing stories, discussing problems and seeking solutions, according to an email about the new programs. Facilitators are trained volunteers who have recovered from postpartum depression and are ready to offer support, validation and information, the email says. Babies under one year are welcome.  

For more information, contact the phone support line at 919-454-6946 or email support@pesnc.org.

That contact information also can be used to get in touch with people who can help women suffering from depression or anxiety during or after pregnancy. If you or somebody you know is hurting, I encourage you to reach out. Postpartum Education and Support can guide you to the help you need.
