News From BBB

New Loss Support Groups

BBB is now offering free, 6-week, dedicated support groups for women who have experienced a miscarriage, stillbirth, death of a newborn, or death of an infant one year of age or younger.

Women may choose between two groups: one for women who are not currently pregnant subsequent to their loss, and one for women who are currently pregnant.

As with our other groups, we accept inquiries and referrals from perinatal, mental, and medical health professionals and from women themselves.

Our Mission

The mission of Beyond the Baby Blues is to provide support to women experiencing perinatal depression and/or anxiety in the context of a therapeutic group that includes their babies. We also provide support and education to the public and other professionals regarding issues that face families experiencing postpartum depression.







Beyond the Baby Blues offers therapeutic support groups for women who are experiencing feelings of sadness, anxiety, isolation, or who are having difficulty adjusting to life with a new baby.

We offer groups for women experiencing anxiety and/or depression during pregnancy, and for women who have experienced a loss.

Our goal is to create a safe and caring space that allows participants to connect with each other and regain their sense of well being.




We have a video for you to watch on Postpartum Mood Disorders.

Here's one by Dr. Christina Hibbert on postpartum couples.

This one is from National Institute of Mental Health.
