Post natal depression can effect anywhere between 10% and 30% of parents* in the first year of their baby's life.

25% of new mothers were still experiencing depressive symptoms a year after their baby’s birth.**


Most women do not seek support for their depressive symptoms.

* There is a great deal of variance in numbers quoted depending on what study or survey is used.

RC Psych say between 10-15% of women are impacted

Charity 4Children put the figure at 3 in 10 women experiencing depressive symptoms in the first year of the baby’s life. ** https://www.basw.co.uk

Many women suffer in silence....

...... some fear that they will be harshly judged or punished by HCP and that there could be negative consequences for asking for help such as their child being taken into care.

Many women are silenced by their own judgement and shame about the thoughts and feelings that are driving their depressive symptoms.

Some parents are scared of what acknowledging their thoughts and feelings might mean and so they deny that there is a problem.
