Supporting Perinatal Mental Health is vital for families.

Prevention matters.

This can start by improving our Maternity Services.

How can this be done?

Firstly we must acknowledge the role that the birth experience plays in emotionally wellbeing and how a difficult birth impacts on perinatal mental health.

Second, that by working to improve maternity services and provide families with positive birth experiences we support perinatal mental health.

By working together we make a difference to families everywhere.

Read my report on how implementing government recommendations such as the Better Births report and the Five Year Forward View for Mental Health can support this.
