Pregnancy & Postpartum Depression Services
As a comprehensive support agency for women and their families, WellMama provides a variety of pregnancy and postpartum depression support groups and services for women, their families, and healthcare professionals. Our services include:
Trained volunteer support mamas, many of whom have recovered from emotional illnesses during or after pregnancy, provide information, referrals, compassion, and non-judgmental listening to mothers and family members. If you live in Lane County, simply leave a message on our toll-free warm line at 1-800-896-0410. We return calls within 24 hours. You can also contact us by email. We also provide referrals for fathers experiencing depression or anxiety. If you do not live in Lane County, call Postpartum Support International at 1-800-944-4PPD.
WellMama provides free pregnancy and postpartum depression support groups in Eugene and Springfield, including two daytime groups at Birth to Three, two evening groups in Eugene, and one evening group in Springfield. These support groups provide a safe place to share the challenges of pregnancy and early parenting, connect with other mothers, and learn tools for wellness. Support groups are open to women and their family members. Babies under a year or so are also welcome.
