Postpartum Support Group in Bethlehem
The Lehigh Valley Postpartum Support group is for expectant and postpartum moms to connect with the best local resources available to help those struggling with transition and postpartum mood disorders. Meetings are held at 7 p.m. on the first Wednesday of each month in Bethlehem.
April Gabriel-Ferretti, a psychotherapist in private practice in Bethlehem who specializes in treating women with postpartum mood and anxiety disorders, is the Lehigh Valley coordinator for Postpartum Support International and has worked as a birth doula. She says, “It is a place of support and non-judgment. We share our stories, learn about maternal mental health and how to navigate the waters of motherhood.”
Gabriel-Ferretti helps expectant and new moms and their families find resources and services they need in relation to life after baby and difficulties regarding maternal mental health. “It is so important that they realize they are not alone and there are resources and services that can help them through this difficult time.”
