You will find a relaxed and welcoming environment at Blossom for discussing these unexpected feelings. Some women in the group may have a diagnosis of prenatal or post partum anxiety or depression while others may just find the challenges of motherhood different than expected. Please feel free to bring your baby.

Schedule: Wednesdays from 10:00-11:30am

Price: $85 for 3 months of unlimited drop-in groups.
