Healing After Traumatic Birth

Do you feel angry, sad, depressed, hopeless, or just need to vent about your birth experience?

You are not alone. Help and support are available.

Please join us at our monthly Traumatic Birth Support Group, facilitated by a local postpartum doula. Moms only, please – no birth professionals, unless you also need support for your own birth.

Confidentiality is strictly ensured.
