The main feelings a woman experiences if she is struggling with one of these debilitating illnesses is one of isolation and loneliness. These figures prove that a woman should not feel alone as there are thousands of other women experiencing illnesses just like you. Women are afraid to talk about how they are struggling therefore this area of pregnancy and maternal mental health is TABOO and a National Silence.
If you are struggling it is vital for you to talk to someone close to you: your partner, a loved one, family, a friend. A professional: Your GP, a Public Health Nurse, or any other professional who you believe could help you.
Or Call Nurture Health on:
