Circle of Moms
Free Peer Support Groups
As the first program of its kind in Palm Beach County, Circle of Moms is designed to support the one in seven women who will experience depression and other mood and anxiety disorders before, during and after pregnancy. Through screening, peer-to-peer support groups, individualized care coordination and training for health professionals, this program reaches both pregnant and postpartum mothers and promotes healthy moods, bonding strategies with babies and how to cope with stress.
Circle of Moms uses the Mothers & Babies curriculum, a stress management intervention that provides pregnant women and new moms with specific skills and strategies for how to manage stress in their lives. With nearly 20% of Healthy Mothers, Healthy Babies clients who screen positive for depression, Circle of Moms provides a trusting atmosphere for mothers and their support partners to gain a better understanding of their emotions and focus on the mental health of themselves and their babies.
Circle of Moms is made possible with funding from the Cigna Foundation, Health Care District of Palm Beach County and Quantum Foundation.
