Postpartum Support 

Approximately 15 to 20 percent of all women experience some form of pregnancy-related depression or anxiety. If this happens to you, know that you are not alone.

If you are experiencing thoughts of suicide, thoughts of self-harm and/or harming others, please call or text 988, call 911, go to your nearest emergency room or contact your local crisis line below:

Getting Better Together: Postpartum Support Group for Moms

Our Getting Better Together Postpartum Support Group provides peer support for moms who may be experiencing depression or anxiety during their transition to motherhood. These support groups are facilitated by VCU Health and VCU team members. We encourage you to take this time for yourself. To protect the privacy of other group members, we ask that family and friends not attend the group. If possible, have someone else care for your children during our virtual group.

In person groups meet the 2nd Friday of each month from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. at VCU Health Hub at 25th in downtown Richmond. Online Zoom groups meet the 4th Tuesday of each month from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

If you have any questions, please call (804) 212-6107 and leave a message with your phone number and one of our team members will return your call.
