If you’re suffering from postpartum depression, a new support group in Fort McMurray might be able to help.
The Hub Family Resource Centre, along with Alberta Health Services, is running their “Moms Matter” program providing these mothers additional peer support.
Postpartum depression comes with many risks such as mental health issues, hormonal changes, and in some circumstances traumatic birth experience.
Moms will get a chance to talk openly about their experiences while giving them a spot to give details about their emotional changes that can come with motherhood.
The free sessions run every Tuesday from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. All mothers are also welcomed to bring their babies with them.
