In April we moved to a new space on Central Street. The space has a parking lot, a ramp for easier stroller access, as well as a place to keep strollers inside during groups. We look forward to offering our next groups there in late April. The address is 3009 Central Street. Access to the parking lot is off of Central Park, just north of Central Street.

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.


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.


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 wellbeing.
