A Blessed Beginning offers a workshop to give information on helping mothers and fathers to prepare or to deal with the physical, emotional and relationship changes that may occur after the baby is born.
Postpartum depression affects 10 to 15 percent of all postpartum women.
Postpartum depression is difficult to identify, because at some point most new mothers feel overwhelmed and unsure of their role, and it can be difficult to determine what is normal and what isn’t.
During the workshop families will watch the video “More than Baby Blues”
In More than Baby Blues you will find experts, as well as individuals who have walked through the experience of postpartum depression. Through their expertise and personal testimonies, the people in this video will help educate new mothers, their family members and friends, and medical professionals on what postpartum depression is, on its warning signs, and on what to do and where to go for help.
