Classes & Therapy Groups

Rooted in Resilience – PMAD Psychotherapy Group

Nearly 1 out of every 5 women experience some form of Perinatal Mood or Anxiety Disorder (PMAD), during pregnancy or after having a baby. Our group is open to any woman currently pregnant through one year postpartum. Facilitated by a licensed therapist, participants can expect to learn communication strategies, notice and challenge anxious thoughts, attachment strategies and proper boundaries with themselves and others. We will focus on self-care and relearning your identity with the added role of ‘parent’.

By joining our weekly PMAD psychotherapy group, you can talk with others who understand what you are going through in a safe, non-judgmental space, as well as find the caring and encouraging support you need.

Topics covered over the 8-week sessions include:

Week 1: Self-Care; Self care assessment; Breathing Exercises; DEAR MAN

Week 2: Sleep & Nutrition; Sleep Protocol; Safe Sleep MDHHS

Week 3: Attachment & Bonding; Check the Facts

Week 4: Identity; Role Identification; Strengths Activity

Week 5: Healthy Relationships; Active Listening; Barriers

Week 6: Boundary Setting & Communication; Boundary Practice examples

Week 7: Scary Thoughts & Mom Guilt

Week 8: Support Persons; Partner/Support person PMAD; Maintaining the relationships; How to support yourself, how to support them
