Maternal Mental Health Awareness Week

maternal mental health week

This week, it’s Maternal Mental Health Awareness Week. Research suggests that as many as 1 in 5 women who give birth in the UK and the US each year will be affected by a maternal mental health disorder. And yet, it’s not something that is talked about much unless it’s a celebrity mother hitting the news headlines. We need to stop treating this as a taboo subject, so today you’ll find me over at Selfish Mother, sharing my story of how I struggled to bond with my baby when my eldest son was born.
