Happy ❤️

This day celebrates the bond between parents or caregivers and their children.

The assignment is simple: Give your kid/s a bear hug!

Research indicates that the more undistracted, quality time spent together, the less likely children are to struggle socially, emotionally, and academically, and the less likely they are to turn to drugs and alcohol or become involved in criminal activity later in life.


Are you a new parent and feeling sad, worried, overwhelmed, or concerned that you aren’t good
enough? Call or text, 1-833-9-HELP4MOMS (1-833-943-5746) to connect with counselors at the National Maternal Mental Health Hotline.

Pregnancy and a new baby can bring a range of emotions. In fact, many women feel overwhelmed, sad, or anxious at different times during their pregnancy and even after the baby is born. For many women, these feelings go away on their own. But for some women, these emotions are more serious and may stay for months.

The National Maternal Mental Health Hotline’s counselors provide real-time emotional support, encouragement, information, and referrals. Pregnant and postpartum individuals and families can get the help and resources they need, when they need it.

Are you a pregnant or new parent and feeling sad, worried, overwhelmed, or concerned that you aren’t good enough? You aren’t alone. You aren’t to blame. With help, you can feel better.

When I’m triggered, my heart races + so does my mind.

When I’m triggered energy runs through my whole body + the emotions feel bigger than I am.

When I’m triggered, I’m experiencing my past in the present moment.

When I’m triggered— I’m afraid.

When I’m triggered the emotional activation changes how I relate to myself + everyone around me.

When I’m triggered, I’m learning to pause.

I’m learning to witness the reaction because that reaction is not who I am.

That reaction is looking for love.

That reaction is looking for kindness.

That reaction doesn’t want to be shamed, or judged— I’ve lived that since childhood.

That reaction is looking for curiosity.

That reaction is looking for the wise, highest version of myself to see it + say “I love that part of you, too.”


This Friday (3/18) is the last day to get tickets to our Bowling Fundraiser! Tickets are $25 a person, which includes 3 games, shoe rental, pizza and a drink.

We will have a raffle and other goodies as well. Also we will be giving the team with the highest score a PRIZE! Get your family or get a team together and come have some fun with us! To purchase your ticket(s) please go to the Events page on our website.


In search of women who are willing to share about postpartum mental health challenges for our postpartum support group at Brantwood.
