Our Story

Judgment-free Support for an Empowered Postpartum Experience

Empowered Postpartum was born from the belief that no new parent should face the challenging adjustment into parenthood alone. We held our first support group in August 2019 and continue to offer virtual donation-based specialty support groups weekly and monthly. We also connect new families to perinatal and other family resources to help ease the transition into parenthood.

We are a unique community in that we serve all people regardless of gender identity, sex, race, ethnicity, religious background, financial circumstance and parenting styles. Our volunteers, support group facilitators and student interns, also reflect such diversity. In this time of COVID-19, we expanded our reach to provide virtual services to families in Orange, Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Riverside and San Diego counties, and will continue to welcome new families outside of Southern California. We look forward to meeting you.
