Expecting or having a baby is a major event in a parent’s life, which can lead to feelings of anxiety, fear and sometimes depression.

Most people have heard of Postnatal Depression (PND), but depression and/or anxiety can actually begin during as well as after pregnancy – what we call perinatal illness – and it can affect both men and women.

If you’re having negative feelings and are worried about opening up to friends and family, our specialist perinatal counsellors can offer a safe space to help you to understand your anxiety or depression, and show you ways to recover.

Whether you’re pregnant or already a parent, a single parent, in a relationship or not, we are here to help you.
