About Your Community Manager

Children: 3 years and 5 years

Career/ job: Masters student/ research assistant

Hobbies and/or interests: Crafts, cooking, learning new things

Best part about being a mom: When they get so excited to see me.

Worst part about being a mom: Feeling like I am always on, always needing to attend to someone's needs

Best advice you received when you first became a mom: "Figure out what works for you and your family. There are no universal steps that will work for everyone".

Why do you volunteer: When I had my son I met a great group of moms. It was harder when I had my daughter to form a group. Social connections especially with other parents who understand your parenting stage is so helpful.

I hope to meet you and become part of your social circle!

    This group is for women who are currently dealing with symptoms of postpartum depression/anxiety including low mood, irritability, crying, difficulty eating/sleeping, intrusive thoughts etc. This group will give you the opportunity to connect with other women and get support and education regarding postpartum mood, as well as strategies for coping, resources and referrals. 

    After registering, our intake coordinator will contact you for an intake before your registration can be confirmed.  


    The group will be facilitated by :

She is the volunteer community manager of Life with a Baby Niagara. She has training in Perinatal Mood and Anxiety disorders, HOPE, and Mental Health First Aid. She has 2 children, and experienced postpartum anxiety. She uses her lived experience to support families and has used the methods that will be taught in this peer support group program to manage her own anxiety.     

    Dana Weatherhead is a doula and mental health advocate trained in Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders. Her background also includes facilitation of support circles and holistic healing modalities to assist others. She is the past-president of a birth association who advocates for birth options for families.
