LAKEPORT, Calif. – Perinatal mood disorders can affect any mother during or after any pregnancy.
Mother-Wise volunteer companions provide support to pregnant and new moms in Lake County when they need it most.
An upcoming volunteer training seminar in Lakeport will introduce the Mother-Wise program and prepare volunteers for home visits by exploring the subjects of perinatal mood disorders, home visiting, values, and active listening.
The training is spread over three days, with the first two sessions in the evening on Thursday, March 31, and Friday, April 1, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
The third session is on Saturday, April 2, from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., with lunch included.
The call for Mother-Wise is growing stronger as word of the program spreads.
The group is continuously seeking volunteer companions who can spend some “one-on-one” time with Lake County mothers.
If you have some experience to share and some room in your heart, please consider volunteering with Mother-Wise. The relationship changes lives.
Registration for the training is required, as is attendance at all three sessions.
For more information, please call Jaclyn Ley at 707-349-1210.
