Episode 06- Annette Cycon and Liz Friedman are the founders of the GPS or Group Peer Support, which is a model of support groups that take an integrated and intersectional community-based group approach.

  • Every mother has her own birth story.
  • Liz and Annette have been in the field of helping mothers with PPD for many of years and they share what has changed in the community.
