Detailed Schedule

Week 1 (October 4, 2019) Post-partum mental health: understanding well-being

The first week will cover topics of post partum anxiety and depression, understanding why it happens, how it happens, and what can be done to prepare for and manage the ups and downs of parenthood. Participants will support each other in fostering and seeking out balance in their life as they adapt to the new role of parenthood.

Week 2 (October 11, 2019) Challenges and changes: web of support and community

This week will cover some of the major challenges that new parents have. Participants will share their insight and experiences with each other in order to generate support and new ways of meeting these challenges without fear and anxiety.

Week 3 (October 18, 2019) Eating well for the family: meal planning and body image

For our food and nutrition week, we will explore our expectations around healthy eating and our post-baby body image. We will discuss practical tips for meal planning and we will share in a mindful eating activity together while continuing to build on the first two sessions of wellbeing and support.

Week 4 (October 25, 2019) Mindful movement: exercising and your post-partum body

Our Mindful Movement week will focus on the post-partum body and challenges related to exercise and attaining physical goals. Get ready to MOVE and engage in exercises that are nourishing for your mind and body.

Week 5 (November 8, 2019) Putting skills into practice

This week will give us a chance to regroup and reflect on any new challenges. We will do a few group activities that will help us put our skills into practice.

Week 6 (November 22, 2019) Wrap-up

We wrap our our 6 week pregnancy and post-partum support group with some goodies, final group activities, and reflection. We will discuss challenges that the upcoming Winter season can bring, and provide everyone an opportunity to continue the lasting relationships developed in the group.
