Support Groups

UPDATED SEPTEMBER 11, 2020

We know that all of us are dealing with a tremendous amount of uncertainty, confusion and disruption to our daily lives, which may result in increased anxiety, depression and fear.  If you are feeling unsettled or worse, please know that we are here to help. During this time of increased caution and care for one another, PSVa is offering our Virtual Support Groups to ALL MOTHERS in Virginia regardless of the age of your child/children as a way to help weather this emotional storm together.  Social support is an important part of self-care during this time of physical distancing. All support groups will be meeting virtually until March 1, 2021.

Our Virtual Support Groups are a safe space to discuss anxiety, fear, parenting, mothering, and care of self.

You can choose a support group based off of your location, or by day/time — all of our groups are open to any mother in Virginia.  To participate, simply join through the Zoom link for the group of your choosing. Please note, all Zoom links have changed to registration only, so if you participated before June 1, the link has changed. 

Your participation through the Zoom app can be via video or voice only.  Alternatively, you can join the meeting through telephone by dialing +1 929-205-6099 and entering the meeting ID.  

Before joining a Zoom meeting on a computer or mobile device, you can download the Zoom app. Otherwise, you will be prompted to download and install Zoom when you join the meeting

If you like, you can join a test meeting to familiarize yourself with Zoom.

If you have any technical difficulties, please text 703-829-7152 (this is also the PSVa warm line number).

(Please note Support groups are an adjunct to — not a replacement for — medical treatment. Those with medical, or mental issues are strongly urged to seek advice from physicians and/or mental health professionals. Find our list of mental health providers offering virtual options here).

As always, if you need direct support or find yourself overwhelmed, please call or text the PSVa Warm Line for virtual support at 703-829-7152.

Please take good care of yourselves and your family, and be well!

  • Smart Patients Postpartum Community offers an online community where women can learn from each other about recovery, treatments, the latest science, and how it all fits into the context of their experience in a private space where they can feel comfortable sharing openly.
