Support for Moms with New Babies

If you are a mom who is experiencing difficulties adjusting to life with a new baby or is coping with Postpartum Mood Disorder (PMD), support is available.

It’s not easy to reach out for support – we’re so glad you’re here.

At BridgeWay, we have a Postpartum Mood Disorder Peer Support Group as well as a phone number and email address you can contact for support and resources. All services are free, no registration required.

Postpartum Mood Disorder Peer Support Group

Our PMD Peer Support Group is a judgement-free space where you can talk about how you feel or just sit and listen to others. Childcare is provided in the centre during the program; you are also welcome to bring your baby with you into the group. This group is available at our Heart Lake, Brittany Glen and Turtle Creek EarlyON locations.

Heart Lake EarlyON
180 Sandalwood Pkwy E., Unit #8C, Brampton

Brittany Glen EarlyON
5632 Tenth Line W., Unit #1 Mississauga

Turtle Creek EarlyON
1801 Lakeshore Rd. W., Unit #101, Mississauga

If you can’t make it right at the start of the group – that’s ok! Join when you can. If you would like to talk to a group facilitator before you attend, please call the centre (phone numbers listed above) or email us at [email protected] (a facilitator will get in touch with you).

PMD Phone and Email

If you have any concerns about changes in your mood or well-being, we are here to listen. You can phone or text 647-913-8410. The line is answered between 9:00am and 4:00pm Monday to Friday. Email [email protected] for free, confidential support and resources.

Please note that our services are not monitored 24/7. If you are experiencing a mental health crisis, you can call the 24/7 Crisis Support Line run by Canadian Mental Health Association’s Peel Dufferin branch at 905-278-9036.
