Saskatoon Postpartum Support Group
The postpartum period can be one of the most challenging times in our lives.
In our culture, the postpartum period is often ignored. Moms feel huge expectations to keep up with all the things they did before baby. The reality is that many days it can feel like it takes superhuman effort just to feed, change and care for the baby - let alone the cooking, laundry, cleaning, household tasks and any other responsibilities she might have. Abandoning mothers to face this alone is so hard on moms and families. Having community support to navigate through this complicated time can help moms to land more gently into this transition of motherhood.
Because so many of us don't have that community to lean on, we believe it's important to have many safe non-judgmental spaces where moms can come and talk about the challenges of postpartum in a real way.
In collaboration with Amanda Brindley from Fitbump SK, this free postpartum support group will run on the second Thursday of every month. This is a safe space where you can meet other women who are experiencing similar struggles, talk about the triumphs and the frustrations, and find compassionate people to hear you. Open to all moms in any stage of postpartum!
Join us on the second Thursday of each month at Fitbump in Saskatoon SK from 12:30pm-1:30pm.

Babes & Bellies
Rural women face unique challenges as they navigate pregnancy and birth. We can learn so much from each other - all we need is the space to connect and share! Babes and Bellies is a place for women to gather and find support, companionship, information and encouragement as they journey through pregnancy, birth and postpartum. We currently host free meetings in Kindersley and Unity, open to all women in the surrounding areas. Contact us directly if you would like us to run a support group in your community.
Kindersley Babes & Bellies
All mothers (and mother to be!) welcome - no charge. The room is big enough for babes and small toddlers but active, older children may be happier left at home. We meet the 2nd Friday of every month from 10:30am-11:30 am at the Kindersley Pharmasave in the Conference Room. For more information, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 306 834-9014.
October 19th - 7pm - 8:30pm at the Kindersley Pharmasave Conference Room
This October, we honor Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness month by hosting a support group for those who have suffered loss. Miscarriage, infant loss, stillbirth - 1 in 4 women experience this heartbreak. We want you to know, you are not alone. Come with your story, or just come to listen - all women are welcome.
