How can you help me?
Post-natal depression, often called the ‘baby blues’, can start shortly after the birth of your baby.
It’s a lot more common than most people realise and is thought to affect about one in 10 mums.*
While having a baby is an exciting event, the effects and changes both physically and emotionally can be difficult to deal with. Lack of sleep, difficulty coping, and just feeling isolated can all lead to symptoms of depression.
italk may be able to help with the way you are feeling, to refer yourself you can call 023 8038 3920 or refer online via the self referral form. Once you have referred we can organise a telephone assessment for you to speak in more detail about how you are feeling with one of our practitioners.
