New Mums Missing Out On Mental Health Care

This a distressing and exasperating report that has been written by the Maternal Mental Health Alliance. The fact that is says one in ten mothers will develop mental illness during pregnancy just shows how widespread and common these problems are.

The teams that are available to help mothers are all working very hard with the resources they have, but the money is constantly being withdrawn and services cut.

These mothers need vital help and support not just for them, but also for their babies and families. You only have to go on the social networks to see how many women have been through this and they are trying to support others in the same situation.

Raising awareness like this article on Sky News is important not only so that the government can see the issues, but also that new mothers can see that they are not alone.
