As many as 1 in 5 new mothers experience some type of perinatal and anxiety disorder.

Today is World Maternal Mental Health Day, a day designated to raising awareness of the mental health struggles new mothers experience.⁠

Women of every culture, age, income level and race can develop perinatal mood and anxiety disorders. Symptoms can appear any time during pregnancy and the first 12 months after childbirth.⁠

As many as 7 in 10 new mothers hide their symptoms and attempt to cope on their own without asking for help. Sometimes this can have devastating consequences. ⁠

⁠If you are a friend or family member to a new mum, ask her how she's really doing and let her know there is support and help out there if she is struggling.⁠ There are effective treatments for these disorders but the first step is knowing there is support out there.⁠⁠

There are many charities in the UK offering mental health support to women, we have included links to some below:⁠

Best Beginnings : bestbeginnings.org.uk

PANDAS Foundation : pandasfoundation.org.uk⁠

Samaritans : samaritans.org

Twins Trust : twinstrust.org

Tommys : tommys.org

Action on Postpartum Psychosis : app-network.org
