What is Maternal Mental Health?

The time around having a baby and the early years of family life can be a special and also a stressful time.

May 3rd 2021

An ordinary journey to being a mother can leave anyone feeling stressed.

If the journey is complicated by infertility, loss, trauma, ill health, conflict, loneliness or other complications we can become more vulnerable to developing a mental health problem.

Maternal mental health problems can happen to anyone.

Why not join us each day to learn more about steps you can take to  look after your mental health during pregnancy and in first few years of motherhood. There will be a new post each day on this website
