Mother and Baby Group (Spanish)

New or pregnant mothers, we invite you to a support group that can help you adapt to changes by having a baby. It is common that your level of exhaustion has risen with the demands of having a baby. Sometimes you may feel mood swings, anxiety, or stress. You may be suffering from postpartum depression or anxiety.

Your life can be improved with help and support! There's hope for you. You’re not alone. The Hoag Mental Health Center wants to help. If you are interested in a group for mothers and babies, it will include the following topics:

  • The transition to maternity
  • Postpartum health
  • Emotional well-being
  • Stress management
  • Risk Factors
  • Your relationship with your partner after having a baby
  • Coping with changes and exhaustion
  • Attachment with the baby
  • Physical development of the baby
