Postpartum Support Group

Postnatal depression and anxiety are real conditions, real issues and there are real help and support available to everyone experiencing difficulty during the postnatal period. Research shows that depression and anxiety begin in the ante-natal time,  so don't discount those experiences, feelings, thoughts or concerns either. Fathers, as well as mothers, suffer from postnatal mental health issues.

Do you experience a lack of sleep, incessant worrying, debilitating anxiety?

Registering with our group might be the first step towards reclaiming control in your life.

Group supporters

 

This group is supported by Marlborough Postnatal Depression Charitable Trust. The main goal of our Trust is to support mothers, fathers, and babies in the most difficult time – the first year of baby’s life. It is a time when almost every mother (and father) is constantly exhausted, feels empty, can’t concentrate, feels guilty about not being a good mother. It is time when mothers find themselves in tears at any time of the day for reasons they can’t explain. Tiredness, insomnia, lack of appetite, sometimes panic attacks and episodes of compulsive behavior are signs of postnatal depression and anxiety. In such time isn’t good to be alone. Because of Trust's support Postpartum Rallying is open for everybody and is charge free.

Childminders. Our childminders faithfully and wholeheartedly offer their time and volunteer to babysit every Wednesday morning. With the support of the local community, mothers can be together part of the journey to a Stronger Self, to a more Happy Experience of Motherhood, to a Better Connection wit their Children.
