Beyond the Baby Blues (BBB) is a peer-led support group for postpartum women (birth-12 months) that is held at the Education Center at Hunterdon Medical Center. Led by moms for moms, BBB supports women who are experiencing symptoms of the baby blues, postpartum depression, or other perinatal mood and anxiety disorders. Beyond the Baby Blues will start meeting Tuesdays, March 10 and 31 then hold subsequent gatherings every first and third Tuesdays beginning April 7 from 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. You are welcome to bring your children aged birth through 12 months.

Every year in New Jersey, between 11,000 and 16,000 women may suffer from postpartum depression (PPD).  PPD is a mood disorder that affects as many as one in eight women usually within the first year after childbirth, miscarriage, or stillbirth.  PPD can be severely debilitating, and can prevent new mothers from functioning as they normally would.  Also, it can have consequences for their infants, older children, and significant others, as well.  PPD often goes undiagnosed and untreated.

The Education Center at Hunterdon Medical Center is located at 215 Route 31 South, Flemington, NJ 08822. For further information or questions, email Katie or Lisa at beyondthebabyblues3@gmail.com.
