Hello, expecting moms. I am Andrea Glover, LCSW, a trained psychotherapist with extensive work experience. As a licensed clinical social worker with a wealth of experience, I’ve seen firsthand the transformative power of support groups, especially during pregnancy. If you’re expecting and feeling overwhelmed, you’re not alone.

I’m excited to share with you eight ways a perinatal support group in Scarsdale or elsewhere in Westchester County can make a real difference in your journey.

Understanding and Empathy

In our pregnancy support groups in Scarsdale, you’ll find a safe space filled with individuals who truly understand what you’re going through. Talking to people who understand can make you feel really good and make you feel like your feelings are okay.

Learning from Others

Each person’s pregnancy journey is unique, but there’s immense value in hearing about others’ experiences. Join our perinatal support group and discover new ideas and perspectives from others in the group. You’ll learn things you might not have thought about before.

Coping Strategies

Navigating pregnancy comes with its own set of challenges, from physical discomfort to emotional ups and downs. In our meetings, we talk about easy ways to deal with stress, worry, and other regular problems. This helps you feel more confident in handling each day.

Building Confidence

Being pregnant can make you feel all sorts of feelings, like not being sure of yourself and feeling unsure. Our group is here to help. We create a safe space where you can feel better about yourself and believe in your ability to deal with anything, knowing there are people who care about you.

Strengthening Relationships

Your relationships may undergo significant changes during pregnancy, and that’s completely normal. In our group, we explore how having a baby affects relationships with partners, family, and friends. We give advice on managing these changes and keeping good relationships.

Access to Resources

As a licensed clinical social worker, I’m committed to providing you with the resources you need to thrive during pregnancy. Whether you have questions about prenatal care, childbirth education, or postpartum support, our group is a valuable source of information and guidance.

Long-Term Support

Pregnancy is just the beginning of your journey into parenthood, and our support group is here for you every step of the way. From prenatal concerns to postpartum adjustments, we offer ongoing support and encouragement as you navigate the joys and challenges of parenthood.

Celebrating Milestones

In our perinatal support group, we celebrate every milestone, big or small. Whether it’s your first ultrasound or your baby’s first kick, sharing these moments with others who understand their significance can make them even more special. Join us as we celebrate the journey of pregnancy together.

The End Note If you’re ready to join a perinatal support group in Scarsdale and experience the benefits firsthand, I invite you to reach out to me for a free consultation. Together, we’ll explore how our group can help you feel empowered, supported, and ready to embrace this incredible journey.
