Island of Hope, The Bloom Foundation, Postpartum Depression

Island of Hope is a Bloom Certified Peer-to-Peer Support Group facilitated by Monika Cancilla .

Monika is a survivor of PMADs (perinatal mood and anxiety disorders) and is passionate about helping other moms heal and bring with them– experience, information, resources and the unconditional support necessary to lead others out of the darkness.

Adjusting to becoming a mother can be difficult. If you are pregnant, or recently had a baby, and can answer YES to any of these questions…

  • Are you anxious?
  • Are you unable to control your mood? (rage/irritability)
  • Do you feel hopeless?
  • Do you feel like a failure?
  • Do you feel sad?

…you may be experiencing Postpartum Anxiety or Postpartum Depression.

Come feel like yourself again!

Meet mothers experiencing the same feelings as you, receive invaluable resources, and emotional support. This is a women only group and we welcome babies in arms. Free.

The Island of Hope Group meets the first Sunday of every month at 7pm
