Postnatal support

Postnatal Depression is what happens when you become depressed after having a baby.  Sometimes, there may be an obvious reason, often there is none. It can be particularly distressing when you have so looked forward to having your baby through the months of pregnancy. You may feel guilty for feeling like this, or even feel that you can't cope with being a mother. It can last for weeks or several months. Mild PND can be helped by better support from family and friends; more severe PND will need extra help from your GP, health visitor or, in some cases, mental health professionals.
