Postpartum Support Group

Adjusting to life with a new baby takes time—and support. We invite all of our mothers, fathers, and anyone else who needs it to join the postpartum support group that meets at the Alaska Family Health & Birth Center. Groups are led by an instructor, but everyone is welcome to discuss the topics and challenges they prefer. Attendance is on an as-needed basis as well.

When is it? The last Friday of every month at 6:30.
Who should go? Anyone who wants or needs extra support.
Where is it? Alaska Family Health &  Birth Center
Led by: Kate Parks

Almost anything goes in the postpartum support group, it all depends on what each person needs. Discussions may include:

  • Physical changes after delivery: what’s happening with my body?
  • Helping siblings adjust to the new baby
  • Intimate relations with your spouse
  • Postpartum depression
  • Family challenges: in-laws and other relatives
  • New baby sleeping habits
  • and more!

Note: Please make other arrangements for your children so you can get the most out of the group.
