For Moms and Families
A mother may experience an array of confusing and frightening symptoms for which she is completely unprepared. She might find herself unable to sleep or eat, be subject to sudden panic attacks, or feel nothing toward the baby she had expected to enjoy. Often, mothers feel inadequate and guilty, afraid to admit their feelings, especially in an age where women are expected to be “super moms”. This inability to ask for help only leads to further isolation and a deepening of their depression. Not only is it ok to ask for help, it is necessary.
What BBC Can do for You
- Call our 24-hour message line and talk to an understanding person who has recovered from prenatal or postpartum depression and anxiety. We can also support women experiencing pregancy loss.
- Meet and share with other moms who are dealing with the same scary emotions and frustrations at our mom to mom support groups.
- Learn more about antepartum and postpartum disorders.
- Find out where to go for additional help and professional treatment services.
In 2003 Baby Blues Connection was granted nonprofit status and our first board of directors was created. In 2008 our 30-plus active volunteers recorded over 1,000 hours of donated time; and BBC solidified its position in the community as the organization which provides free information and support to postpartum families struggling with depression, anxiety and adjustment stress.
