New Wednesday and Saturday groups starting soon. Call 847.864.7957 now for more information. Our Saturday groups were started 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. Our groups are once/week for 6 weeks. They are held at our space at 3009 Central Street in Evanston. Free parking is available behind our building off of Central Park Avenue. All of our groups are offered free of charge and include a meal.

Please Support Our Work

The decision we made some months ago to add Saturday groups for working women has increased the number and size of our groups significantly. This has coincided with increased referrals from obstetricians, doulas and midwives, as well as women who are seeking services who find us online. In order to fund our free six-week groups we depend on support from community members in the form of individual donations and grants from family and community foundations. If you think that providing groups for women who are struggling emotionally during their pregnancy or after they give birth is important, please support BBB with a donation. Click here to learn how to give. Gifts of any amount are most welcome and are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. THANK YOU!

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 (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.




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

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