Mother Matters

Are you a mother with a new baby and finding it hard to cope with how your life has changed?

Do you feel isolated and alone? Are you struggling with feelings of sadness?

Do you find it hard to control your worries?

Are you struggling with how having a baby has changed your self-identity, your sexuality or your relationships?


Consider joining MOTHER MATTERS our online support group for women with mood /adjustment challenges following the birth of their baby.

Mother Matters is a 10-week online support group run by the Mental Health Program at Women’s College Hospital. It will take place on a confidential discussion board, giving you the opportunity to share your thoughts, feelings, and experiences, while learning from and supporting other mothers. Each week a new topic will be explored, relating to issues that commonly emerge during the first year of life with a new baby.


Registration for fall and winter sessions is now open. To see if you are eligible to participate, please complete the online questionnaire. For more information about the program including future session dates, please email to mothermatters@wchospital.ca. Please no phone calls.
