"I didn't feel like I was being a mother"

The Mental Health Foundation article describes post-natal depression, how it can make mothers feel and how and where to gain support with this important issue. It follows the story of mum Vickie and her son Oliver who she was detached from after a difficult birth and struggled to bond with resulting in her gaining support and treatment for post-natal depression. 

Maternal Mental Health is very important and reading Vickie's story will help mums who are feeling like her before or following the birth of their child.

The Mum's in Mind Project and the Maternity Mental Health Alliance are here to help.
