The Motherhood Café: Maternal Mental Health : Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorder Awareness

  • Mosaic in the Plaza 2323 Memorial Ave. Lynchburg, VA 24501 United States (map)

Motherhood is often challenging. Beginning in pregnancy and continuing through the early postpartum days, we are adjusting to a new role, a new identity. Our life can feel constantly interrupted or out of our control. The way we see ourselves and even define our worth may change. It can become more difficult to prioritize self care. Finding time to evaluate our health, physical, mental and emotional, may seem impossible when managing the needs of an infant or a busy, growing family. However, being a mother shouldn’t mean that we neglect ourselves. Today we’re going to talk specifically about the mental health of mothers. We’ll touch on the symptoms of common disorders and challenges and chat with other mothers and professionals about the ways we can evaluate our health, and how to nurture ourselves while juggling the needs of our families.

Due to insurance reasons, children over 1 are not allowed in the building. Childcare registration, for ages 1-4 is FREE of charge and available below. Childcare slots are limited and registration is on a first come first serve basis.

Childcare registrations can be made by emailing: childcare@themotherhoodcollective.org
