Maternal Mental Health




If you are pregnant or a mom feeling disconnected and disheartened by motherhood or struggling mentally, we’re here. You don’t need an official postpartum anxiety or depression diagnosis to join us in our professionally-led peer support group.

HOPE is here to help you navigate these emotions, hear others’ stories, tell your own, and heal alongside other moms. Join us and lift off the weight. Together, we’ll renew your mental health and support each other through this hard time. 

Our meetings are led by Public Health Nurses with in-depth knowledge of motherhood and vast experience in mental health.

You’re not alone, these feelings are not your fault, and with help you can be well again. There is HOPE.



During pregnancy and after birth, you will feel a rollercoaster of emotions. Love. Joy. Stress. But sometimes this last emotion takes hold too strongly and for too long. If you’re feeling tired, sad, or worried to a point where it is difficult to care for yourself or your baby, it could be depression or anxiety. 

Postpartum depression and anxiety happens to about 20% of mothers and 10% of fathers.

Although it happens to many, you should still seek help. You can feel better with support and treatment.
