Your mental health during pregnancy and after giving birth

Mental illnesses affect more than one in ten individuals during pregnancy and in the time after giving birth.

If untreated, these illnesses can have a significant impact on you and your family.

This year has been difficult for everyone and we need you to know that services are still open.

The way services are being offered may vary – you may be visited in your home, contacted by telephone or by  using video calls.

Please feel that you can still contact your midwife, health visitor or GP for extra support or contact:
