Maternal Mental Health Matters

In the UK it is Maternal Mental Health awareness week; as a society we are increasingly aware of the importance of reaching out for help and not being ashamed to share our mental health concerns. However, it is estimated that 1 in 5 new mothers experience a perinatal mood associated disorder such as psychosis, anxiety or depression - shockingly 75% of those cases will go undiagnosed.

If you have recently had a baby and are having difficulties with your feelings, reach out. If you don't feel able to speak to friends or family or even a GP, there are a number of charities who are there to help such as the peer to peer support community, Please don't feel you are alone and know that this is NOT your fault.
