Postpartum Support

Postpartum Support

Mothercraft Ottawa’s Postpartum Support Drop-In Programs provides families with a safe and supportive environment where they can explore postpartum issues and learn coping strategies and skills. Our goal is to create a sense of community and reduce feelings of isolation.

Moms Postpartum Support Drop-ins

Welcome to the Mothercraft Ottawa’s FREE Postpartum Support Drop-in for moms.

This free support group is the first of its kind in Ottawa. We are committed to providing a safe, non-judgemental space for those experiencing perinatal mental health challenges.  It is designed to be a relaxed, engaging and informative environment, where people can express their thoughts & concerns, ask questions, receive guidance from postpartum professionals, get connected with local resources and most importantly to others in the community who are experiencing similar challenges.

Every drop-in is adapted to meet the needs of those present and may include discussions on various postpartum topics with handouts, referrals and resources for ongoing support. Babies under 12 months are welcome to join!


In response to the pandemic, our support drop-in has gone virtual, every Wednesday from 10-12:00.

Registration is required every week through Eventbrite.  To register, click here to visit Eventbrite Ottawa. Search Mothercraft Postpartum, to obtain a list of dates to select from.

The group will meet on Zoom, the link for which can be found at the very bottom of the confirmation email from Eventbrite.
