THE BIRTH SQUAD: Experiencing emotional distress after the birth of a baby is extremely common. It can make you feel sad, stressed out, worried, and wonder if things will ever get better or if anyone else understands. Beginning to share your feelings, worries, and experiences can feel overwhelming. Trying to find a therapist can sometimes feel impossible. However, help and support are available. Right here, right now. The Birth Squad Denver and your community are here for you. We offer several types of support groups in the Denver area including affinity support group spaces for Black and Latino/a moms and birthing people in English and Spanish. Babies are welcome at all groups! https://psichapters.com/co/#birth-squad
