Such a great idea. During my own PMAD experience I loved the theraputic support group I attended; however, it included all people with depression, substance abuse, and anger management issues. Having a peer led, and peer attended support group allows women to open up in ways that they may not otherwise. Having specialized groups around military, teen moms, and ethnic groups may be beneficial in the same way. I would love to see moms from differenet communities trained to lead these groups, or supported in other ways by Postpartum Support Virginia so that it would be possible for them to lead their specialized peer groups: transportation assistance, childcare, and technology support for virtual/web-based groups come to mind.
