Baptist Health offers free, local support groups for moms

The main message of Baptist Health’s ongoing support groups for new mothers experiencing mood issues: You are NOT along, its NOT your fault and with help, you CAN get better.

Their free posptartum support groups are held at Destination Maternity at the St. Johns Town Center in Jacksonville. For more information, call 904.202.2229 or visit The classes have no cost but registration is required for attendance.

The groups are for mothers who are feeling anxious, depressed or just want support during pregnancy or their first year postpartum. They are facilitated by staff with advanced training in Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders from Postpartum Support International.

The group is open to women only. Babies in arms are welcome, but not child care is provided.
