MADISON (WKOW) -- Exhaustion, anxiety, baby blues, stress and depression. Some women experience these symptoms after having a child.
For parents this can be tough. There's a new support group in Madison called, "Postpartum Peers" to help parents deal with these emotions after having a baby.
Postpartum Peers is a peer-to-peer group offering a safe, judgement-free space for women to talk about the difficulties that come with transitioning to motherhood. Their goal is to provide a group that can be a complement to your prenatal journey. They're a small group of volunteers, some who have experienced postpartum depression.
Meetings are free and held two times per month. Meeting on the west side are the fourth Saturday or each month from 4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. They're held at the Madison Birth Center at 6720 Frank Lloyd Wright Avenue in Middleton.
Meetings are also held on the eastside on the first Tuesday of each month from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at Happy Bambino at 4116 Monona Drive in Madison.
