Mental health problems in motherhood are common, but rarely discussed.
There are different types of post natal mental health problems and they can vary in severity. If you are feeling unwell after (or during) pregnancy, the important thing to try and remember is that you are not alone and that with help, things will get better.
The best thing you can do if you are struggling with your mental health is to contact your GP or Health Visitor and ask for an urgent appointment. If you would like information and support on postnatal mental health please look through the links below.
