If you or your partner find yourself struggling emotionally during pregnancy or after the baby arrives, you are not alone. Many parents have a hard time during this time of massive transition. Some of us have risk factors that make it more likely that we will struggle emotionally. Some of us have no risk factors and still struggle. With help and support you CAN feel better. Please contact the Family Services Director for more information about online, one-on-one, and group support that’s right for you.
