Childbirth, and the feelings experienced with the birth of a new baby, are often the most memorable a mother can experience. And while some new mothers easily adjust to their new role, for others the experience can sometimes be overwhelming.
To help moms ease into the transition that a newborn brings, Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital has developed Mommy Time – a free postpartum support group which meets on Mondays, 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. in Henry Mayo’s Pavilion Conference Room, 25727 McBean Parkway, Valencia.
Moms are invited to share their experiences and concerns, or just listen, during discussions on the emotional adjustments experienced during pregnancy, birth and the first year postpartum. The support group is facilitated by trained specialists who understand the enormous changes and challenges that this transition can bring.
Henry Mayo has also created a resource line for new moms needing advice or someone to talk to about their concerns. The resource line is answered by trained specialists. To contact the resource line or to learn more about the Mommy Time support group, please call (661) 200-BABY.
