Postpartum Resource Group Peer Support Meeting
We meet every third Monday of the month at 6 PM - 8 PM in the chapel room at Kalispell Regional Medical Center, 310 Sunnyview Lane, Kalispell. It is a cozy, private room—our group is not religious-based despite it being in the chapel. To find it, enter the Main Entrance of the hospital, go left towards the cafe and gift shop. The chapel is next to the cafe and across from the gift shop.
2018 Schedule of Meeting Dates
Postpartum Resource Group offers a free monthly peer support group for mothers who are experiencing postpartum mood disorders, including depression, anxiety, and OCD, and for mothers who are or have experienced loss, trauma, or hardship from pregnancy into the postpartum period. Peer support groups are confidential and are led by warrior moms who have experienced or may be currently be continuing the healing process towards maternal mental health themselves. We welcome all mothers who would like to connect with and gain support from moms who can empathize with the journey of maternal mental health and the challenges of different seasons of motherhood, from pregnancy and beyond. We support mothers who:
have been diagnosed with a postpartum mood disorder
think they may have more than baby blues but have not been clinically diagnosed with a postpartum mood disorder
are grieving the loss of a child from miscarriage, stillbirth, adoption, surrogacy, or any other form
have experienced or are experiencing a traumatic pregnancy, birth of a child, or postpartum recovery and transition into motherhood
have or had a child in intensive care or have been diagnosed with a serious medical condition
have colicky or challenging babies or children who may contribute to feelings of inadequacy, anxiety, and depression
have a partner who may be experiencing depression, anxiety, rage, addiction, et cetera
have or had hardship, trauma, or onset of mood disorders with breastfeeding, formula feeding, weaning, et cetera
are experiencing a relapse of symptoms months or years after the immediate postpartum period. We welcome mothers of all ages.
