Postpartum Education and Support Group
Putting Parents First
Through our postpartum care package distribution, many community members expressed the need for more education and support for people experiencing pregnancy and postpartum. In an effort to continue supporting the reproductive wellness needs of women, Love Your Menses is pleased to offer a FREE 10-week postpartum education and support group for Black and Brown pregnant and postpartum individuals.
The postpartum recovery period is the time when a person recovers from the crucial changes that occurred to their body during the antenatal period to the delivery period. This time is very critical and necessary. Research has shown social support to be proven effective in helping mothers cope with psychological and physical stressors in the postpartum period.
Since 2020, we have supported 200 Black and Brown mothers with a postpartum care bundle. It is our hope to expand distribution to other cities/towns across the U.S. and globally.
Our postpartum education and support group features:
Weekly educational sessions
Group chats with postpartum doulas, midwives and OB/GYNs
Postpartum care packages and other giveaways
and MUCH MORE!
The Spring session program took place from
April 5th - May 10th 2024
The application will open soon.
