WellMama offers 5 pregnancy and postpartum depression support groups every month in Eugene and Springfield and 2 prevention & skills-oriented Wellness Mamas groups in Eugene. Groups are small and intimate, with about 2-5 women attending each session. Trained “support mamas” facilitate each group and share information about prevention and wellness. Facilitators answer questions without giving advice.

Support people, including partners, and babies under a year are welcome at all meetings. Some groups are kid friendly and some provide childcare – check details below. Mats, toys, and blankets are provided. Attendees receive resource packets with helpful information at their first support group.
