The Center for Postpartum Family Health is thrilled to announce a new partnership with the non-profit organization called “A Mother’s Sanctuary” or AMS. AMS is a group of support group leaders and speakers that provide free support group for new mothers struggling with perinatal mood and anxiety disorders and offer trainings in mental health to the community. Founder La Shonta Edwards brings a wealth of experience to her position as the head of AMS, as a mental health first aid instructor, postpartum doula, and mother of five.  For more information about A Mother’s Sanctuary, click here.

Beginning in August, A Mother’s Sanctuary leaders will be leading our free weekly support groups for pregnancy and postpartum mood and anxiety disorders in two locations.  

The “Brown Bag Mom’s Circles” take place:

  • Mondays at 12 noon at CPFH North starting August 6th- Location: CPFH North Office 

         26411 Oak Ridge Drive, The Woodlands, TX 77380

  • Wednesdays at 12 noon at CPFH Central starting August 1st- Location: 3418 Mercer, #100, Houston, Texas 77027

If you’d like to check out one of our free support groups, stop by any time! Mothers and family members and babies in arms, are always welcome.   You are welcome to bring your lunch too!

Although free support groups are no substitute for professional mental health care, they are an excellent adjunct to other forms of treatment and a can enhance the experience of recovering from a perinatal mood and anxiety disorder, or just a nice place for mothers to talk about how they are.
