Coping with Change
Many women anticipate feelings of happiness with the birth of their baby. New mothers are often surprised by other feelings such as fatigue, sadness, anger, inadequacy, fear or anxiety. It is normal to go through an adjustment period following childbirth – all new mothers experience an adjustment in their own way. The Coping with Change series helps mothers work through the emotional and lifestyle changes that occur after the birth of a baby. Participants learn how to cope with adjustments and recognize if more support is needed. Childcare is provided.

Having a safe and loving home and spending time with family―playing, singing, reading, and talking―are very important. Proper nutrition, exercise, and rest also can make a big difference.
