Support for Perinatal Women
Finding out you are pregnant is not always a happy time. It can bring fear and avoidance, as well as feelings of anxiety and uncertainty. Who do you talk to regarding these thoughts? You have all these thoughts and feelings to cope with, on top of coping with day-to-day life.
What about the birth? Who prepares you for the biggest and most life changing event of your life? How can you prepare for Birth?
The answer is we cannot, we set ourselves up with expectations and the realisation is very different. It can leave us feeling out of control and we feel lost.
Births can be a very traumatic time. It is a taboo subject that does not really get spoken about; this is because there is no one there to talk to about how we’re really feeling.
When the baby is born – what if you feel alone, isolated, tired and you cannot cope? Who do you talk to?
These are all natural feelings to have, and its where Mothers Matter can help.
You matter, we matter - Mothers matter.
Let us hold your hand through the fog.

Also known as PMH, perinatal mental health occurs during pregnancy and during motherhood up until your baby is 3 years old.
Postnatal depression, commonly known as PND, affects between 10 to 15 in every 100 women after having a baby.
