Mother-Wise is excited to announce a new weekly radio program on KPFZ 88.1 FM, Lake County Community Radio, called Mom Matters airing weekly on Wednesday at 9:00 a.m. The program will focus on issues pertaining to motherhood and babies, and discussion topics will correspond to what we share each week in our local in-person moms’ group. This will give moms who cannot attend the group an extra chance to learn and join the conversation, essentially bringing the moms’ group right into the home. The program will be hosted by the Mother-Wise program director, Jaclyn Ley, and she will occasionally be joined by special guests who offer deeper insight into certain topics. Mom Matters will be a call-in program, facilitating open discussion and community involvement.
Mother-Wise is a no-cost resource for all of Lake County’s pregnant and new moms. The main goal of Mother-Wise is to prevent or minimize the disruptive effects of perinatal mood disorders, including postpartum depression. Besides offering useful information for daily life as a mom, an ongoing theme of the Mom Matters radio program will be perinatal mental health and reducing the stigma that can result in barriers to proper and timely support.
Please mark your calendar and tune in Wednesdays at 9:00am to be part of the conversation. The Studio call in line is 707/263.3435.
