New Mother Support Group Begins
New moms experiencing anything from simple growing pains to postpartum depression now have a support group to discuss their feelings.
The Nurturing the New Mother support group is being offered by High Point Regional’s Behavioral Health each Thursday at 4 pm and is hosted by a Marriage and Family Therapist, Cynthia Palmer.
The group will offer mothers a chance to support one another in their newest roles with topics such as relaxation exercises, assertive communication, prioritizing needs, flexibility versus perfectionism, acceptance of feelings, healthy expectations of oneself, how to delegate, and creating healthy lifestyles.
The group is open to all moms in the community, is $10 per session and will be conducted in an open group discussion format. Location is High Point Regional’s Outpatient Behavioral Health Office, 320 Boulevard Ave., and alternate care needs to be arranged for baby while mom attends the session.
