Perinatal Mental Health

What does Better Births say?

Perinatal mental illness affects up to 20% of women, and covers a wide range of conditions. If left untreated, it can have significant and long lasting effects on the woman and her family.

Perinatal mental health problems can also have long-standing effects on children’s emotional, social and cognitive development.

The wellbeing of women and their families is as important as the physical wellbeing of the women and developing baby – the NHS needs to consider this in an integrated way.

If you are feel that you are suffering from mild-moderate symptoms, be sure to contact the services that can support you. All are happy to talk and support you through your feelings and concerns.
