Understanding Pregnancy and Postpartum Stress & Depression

This free support group is open to all pregnant or postpartum women who are experiencing prenatal or postpartum mood and anxiety issues.

Resources, such as guest speakers, books, videos, and handouts are integrated into informal meetings.

The group is facilitated by Teresa Oliver, RN, Linda Gaddis, RN, and Marjorie Scheikl, MSN, RN. All three of the group facilitators are volunteers for Postpartum Support Virginia which is the state organization that promotes support for mothers experiencing such problems.

The group is offered on the third or fourth Thursday each month from 7 p.m. - 8 p.m. Newborns up to 12 months of age are welcome.
