A variety of support groups are offered at Carondelet.

There are a variety of support groups offered at Carondelet St. Joseph’s Hospital to help women and their families navigate the challenges of childbirth—from breastfeeding to postpartum depression to coping with the loss of a baby. Here, you will find a discrete, compassionate staff and other women who’ve been through the same challenges. You don’t have to go through these difficult transitions or grief alone.

Breastfeeding Support Group - free A support group for new mothers and their infants. Visit with other moms, receive support from lactation specialists, share experiences and more! Contact (520) 873-1609.

Postpartum Depression Support Group - free A support group for women who are pregnant or who have recently given birth and are suffering from postpartum depression and anxiety—the most common complication after childbirth. Our program at St. Joseph’s Hospital has served as a national model for other hospitals’ support groups on postpartum depression. Contact (520) 873-6858.

Footprints Support Group - free A support group for parents who have lost a baby to miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, stillbirth, newborn death or SIDS.
