Resources During COVID-19

Postpartum Support Virginia’s Warm Line is Available to You at (703) 829-7152. 

We will return your call within 24 hours if we are helping another mom at the time you call.

PSVa families,

We are all dealing with a tremendous amount of uncertainty, confusion and disruption to our daily lives, which may result in increased anxiety, depression and fear.  If you are feeling unsettled or worse, please know that we are here to help. In addition to our warm line still being an option, if you are craving connection with multiple other moms while practicing social distancing, PSVa is offering our Virtual Support Groups to ALL MOTHERS in Virginia regardless of the age of your child/children as a way to help weather this emotional storm together.  Social support is an important part of self-care during this time of physical distancing!

Virtual Support Groups

Our Virtual Support Groups are a safe space to discuss anxiety, fear, parenting, mothering, and care of self.

You can choose a support group based off of your location, or by day/time — all of our groups are open to any mother in Virginia.  To participate, simply join through the Zoom link for the group of your choosing.  Your participation through the Zoom app can be via video or voice only.  Alternatively, you can join the meeting through telephone by dialing +1 929-205-6099 and entering the meeting ID.  If you have any technical difficulties, please text 703-829-7152 (this is also the PSVa warm line number).  

Zoom

Before joining a Zoom meeting on a computer or mobile device, you can download the Zoom app. Otherwise, you will be prompted to download and install Zoom when you join the meeting.  If you like, you can join a test meeting to familiarize yourself with Zoom.  

As always, if you need direct support or find yourself overwhelmed, please call or text the PSVa Warm Line for virtual support at 703-829-7152. We are here for you.

Pregnancy Support Group

8:00 – 9:00 pm
Tuesdays
Begins May 5, 2020

Register in advance for this meeting:

We recognize that this is a time of increased stress and anxiety for those who are expecting. In-person classes are postponed, the number of support people permitted with you during labor has been reduced, and there are new requirements for prevention that may have you feeling anxious or left with questions. This group will be a safe space to discuss your anxiety, worries, as well as hopes for birth. This group is facilitated by licensed therapists and a labor and delivery nurse (when she is not at a shift!). The group will provide an opportunity for connection, skills building, and problem-solving.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

Long Distance Resources

Can’t find someone to talk to close to home?  Several resources are available online or via phone:

  • Postpartum Support International offers weekly online support groups, including a group just for military mothers.
  • Online PPD Support Group offers online moderated discussion forums about perinatal mood and anxiety disorders.
  • Smart Patients Postpartum Community offers an online community where women can learn from each other about recovery, treatments, the latest science, and how it all fits into the context of their experience in a private space where they can feel comfortable sharing openly.

If this is a medical emergency, or if you feel you might harm yourself or your baby, contact 911 or go to the nearest hospital emergency room.
