Perinatal Positivity

Perinatal mental health issues can happen in any pregnancy, and in the first years of being a parent (antenatal and postnatal).

Issues can affect new mums and dads, people with no history of mental health problems as well as those who have a history of mental health issues.

These can include depression, anxiety, OCD, psychosis and post-traumatic stress amongst other things.

If you, or someone you are close to, is experiencing mental wellbeing problems connected to pregnancy and being a new parent, talk to us, your health visitor or midwife and visit the Perinatal support page to find local and national support organisations:
