Getting Better Together

Postpartum Support Group for Moms

Getting Better Together: Postpartum Virtual Support Group for Moms provides peer support for moms who may be experiencing depression or anxiety during their transition to motherhood. About 15% to 20% of all women experience some form of pregnancy-related depression or anxiety. If this happens to you, it is important to know that you are not alone, and that we are here to help.

These virtual 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. If you have any questions, please call (804) 828-3423 and leave a message with your phone number and one of our team members will return your call. This phone number and registration page is not checked daily.
