New Offering: SATURDAY grouP
BBB began offering a Saturday morning group in September of this year. Our aim is to meet the needs of women struggling with postpartum mood disorders who are unable to attend our Wednesday groups because they have returned to work. The six-week group will be offered from 9:30-11 a.m. All of our groups are offered free of charge and include a meal.
New Wednesday groups are starting up every few weeks. We are currently facilitating our 31st group. Our next group will begin soon and will be offered Wednesdays from 10 to 11:30 a.m. If you are interested in that group or a new Saturday group, call 847-864-7957 or email:
Our next Prenatal Group is currently accepting referrals and inquiries from interested and pregnant women. For further information, call 847-864-7957, or email:
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.

WHAT WE do
Beyond the Baby Blues (BBB) 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 also offer groups for women experiencing anxiety and/or depression during pregnancy. 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.
