Who We Serve
Despite being surrounded by people, you feel completely alone and disconnected.
This should be the happiest time of your life, but all you know is anxiety, overwhelm, and exhaustion.

From One of Our Moms
“Postpartum Support Charleston has helped me to feel less alone. I just got paired with a wonderful mom mentor and I’ve ‘met’ a few new friends and I’m hopeful I’ll meet more. I’m so grateful this is an available resource, I would not have had it available where we moved from. Just knowing I’m not alone in my thoughts is great but having others to talk to is amazing. Even just the posts on Facebook of the little reminders that we matter are a big help. Thank you so much.”
Virtual Peer-Support Group
Need some emotional support but can’t seem to find the energy or time to get out of the house? You are not alone.
Join us every Sunday for a Virtual Peer-Support Group led by Amber Weakley, our Program Coordinator for Support Services.

The exhaustion that comes with just being a mom day in and day out, and then we add on this perfection. This need to be and do the best. It’s overwhelming. It’s impossible to keep up with.
In a season where you are giving to everyone, it’s important to remember that you should give back to yourself, too!
Postpartum Planning is a crucial part of getting ready for baby. Taking the time to plan for YOUR emotional and physical health can make your postpartum experience more manageable.
