Postpartum Anxiety and Depression is the most common complication women experience after childbirth. About 1 out of every 8 women will experience anxiety and/or depression after delivery. It can occur within days of the birth or appear gradually, sometimes up to a year later. This Postpartum Support Group offers support and education for women struggling with this. Women find it helpful to learn that they are not alone during this difficult time. Talking with others as well as a professional who understand and are able to support them is a very important part of the recovery process.
The group is facilitated by Elise Derevjanik, LMHC an experienced licensed mental health counselor who can provide information about the different treatment options, and also can make referrals to appropriate providers or schedule more comprehensive individual therapy with you for further treatment if necessary.
The group will take place on Tuesdays at 7:30pm at Waddle n Swaddle in Beacon NY.
