Looking after your mental health during or after Pregnancy

Pregnancy and the post-natal period brings a lot of change and it is normal to experience a range of emotions during this time. However, it also a time when you may become more vulnerable to developing a mental health disorder.

One in ten women can suffer from a mental health illness during or after pregnancy in any given year, where you may experience symptoms such as anxiety or depression during pregnancy or in the year after giving birth.

If you do feel like you may be struggling or suffering with a mental health disorder during or after pregnancy, there is support available. Talking therapies like cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) can be really effective, teaching you coping strategies and techniques to help you get back to enjoying your time as a new parent.

Online CBT is available free on behalf of the NHS for people aged 18 or over and registered with a GP in Surrey. You can refer yourself directly to the service without having to visit your GP.
