Postpartum Village Online Support Group

Weekly Online Postpartum Village Support Group

Listen and share your story as a new parent from the comfort of your own home. Join UCSF's Postpartum Village online support group offered weekly on a drop-in basis. Our goal is to support our postpartum patients who are facing the ups and downs of being new parents, healing and connecting with other families especially during the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic.

This group will include facilitated peer support, strategies for postpartum recovery and practice of stress reduction techniques, such as mindfulness. This support group is not intended to treat direct postpartum medical conditions, but a referral can be provided if needed. 

Pregnancy Loss Support and Education Group

This online support/education group takes place every other Friday from 12-1pm for UCSF patients who have experienced a first trimester pregnancy loss (up to 13 weeks) in the past year. There is no cost for the group. The group will be facilitated by psychologist Lauri Pasch, PhD, Associate Professor at the UCSF Center for Reproductive Health and by Patricia Robertson, MD, a UCSF obstetrician who specializes in high risk pregnancies.
