Group for moms with mood and anxiety disorders will meet Jan. 24

The Mom-to-Mom Support Circle will hold its next meeting from 7 to 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 24, in the OB Classroom at UR Medicine Thompson Hospital, 350 Parrish St. in Canandaigua.

The group is for mothers struggling with a mood and/or anxiety disorder that occurs during pregnancy or after the birth of a new baby. This includes mothers with depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorder.

Facilitated by Maureen Kellogg of Thompson’s Social Work Department, Thompson Lactation Consultant/RN Courtney Phillips and a volunteer from the community, the group offers moms a “safe space” to be transparent about motherhood, mental health, and all the little things in between, providing opportunities to talk with others who have been through or are currently walking through this same season of life.

The group meets the fourth Thursday evening of each month. For information, call (585) 396-6295.
