Mums, have you been feeling down lately? Are you anxious or stressed out? You may not realize it, but these feelings can impact your unborn baby. It’s important to seek help for your mental health during pregnancy.
Have you been feeling down since giving birth? You’re not alone. Many women experience postnatal mental health issues, such as depression and anxiety. However, these conditions are often misunderstood and go untreated.
Caring for a new baby can be both challenging and rewarding, and it is important to get as much support as possible. If you are a father or a friend/family member of new parents, here are some resources for you.
As a parent, you face many challenges. It can be tough to keep your spirits up when things are difficult, but it is important to remember that you are not alone. It’s important to stay positive and motivated, even when things get tough.
As a healthcare professional, you may be called upon to help parents, before and after the birth of their baby. Often during this time, they may find it difficult to ask for help. To support you and your clients we have a library of resources and contacts, to help parents adjust to their new role.

Coming up on 16th & 17th June, WHWS with our sister organisation, The Centre for Perinatal Mental Health and Pregnancy Support are proud to present their Perinatal Mental Health Symposium.
Following the success of the 2021 event, we have extended the symposium to cover 2 days.
Day 1 is for the general public. Expectant mothers, fathers, or those who just want to know more about how you can offer support in pregnancy and the newborn/toddler years. Join us for a day of amazing, professional speakers and learn practical exercises for you to put use to during this time to nurture your mental health as well as make the transition easier.
Day 2 is for professionals working in the Perinatal space. This includes social workers, midwives, OT’s, counsellors just to name a few. We will be joined by industry experts who share their wealth of knowledge around supporting the health and wellbeing of perinatal mothers, their partners and babies. CPD point eligible.
