Single Perinatal (Pregnancy and Postpartum) Parent Support

1st and 3rd Thursdays at 1PM (EST) or 10:30PM (EST)

Single parenthood is challenging, especially during pregnancy and postpartum (perinatal period). Led by trained peer facilitators, this group is for perinatal single parents who are widowed, divorced, or never married or partnered with their co-parent, but they are caring for a baby (up to two years old) without a partner in their home. We know that single parents face unique challenges and obstacles that put them at a higher risk for experiencing depression, anxiety, and feelings of overwhelm during the pregnancy and postpartum, so this group is a space dedicated to discussing those specific challenges and finding support from those in similar situations. Having feelings of chronic low energy, anxiety, or sadness as a single parent may feel like the norm, but there are options for support. You are not alone, and we are here to help.

PSI Support Groups

All of our groups are FREE and virtual. When registering for Sharewell for the first time skip the unlimited offer on the payment page.

What to Expect

Our groups are 90 minutes (1.5 hours) in length. The first ~30 minutes is providing information, education, and establishing group guidelines. The next ~60 minutes is “talk time,” in which group members share and talk with each other. Group members must be present for the group guidelines before joining in the discussion or “talk time.”

Student and clinical observations are not allowed in our group spaces due to confidentiality and creating a safe space
