"This Isn't What I Expected..."

Are you experiencing any of the following?

  • difficulty sleeping or staying asleep
  • difficulty resuming your usual activities, or loss of interest in them
  • loss of appetite
  • feeling anxious, irritable or frustrated, i.e., little things set you off
  • frequent crying and feeling sad

If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, please know that you are not alone. Spectrum Health offers a Postpartum Emotional Support Group for new mothers who are experiencing difficulty adjusting to parenthood. A registered nurse and a therapist facilitate the support group.

On the fourth Tuesday of each month we host a Dad’s night. A therapist is available to meet with Dads and support persons to allow time for sharing and lending additional support.

No registration is necessary—just come and join us. Babies and/or support persons are welcome.

For schedule changes around major holidays or during inclement weather, please call Healthier Communities at 616.391.5000 option 3.

Meetings are held every Tuesday at Healthier Communities.
