Most people today have heard the term ‘baby blues’ used to describe a mild, short, period of depression which many women experience after childbirth.  Fewer people are aware that as many as 10% of all recently delivered women develop postnatal depression. You are not alone in suffering.  The Association for Post-Natal Illness is the leading organisation in its field.  It was established to – provide support to mothers suffering from post-natal illness, increase public awareness of the illness, and encourage research into its cause and nature.

The Association provides a telephone helpline, information leaflets for sufferers and healthcare professionals as well as a network of volunteers (telephone and postal), who have themselves experienced postnatal illness. Call them between 10.00 am and 2.00 pm on 0207 386 0868 or chat with them using the chatbox on the bottom left of the website. The staff will do everything that they can to help you and they will be able to offer you information and reassurance.

For a printed information pack send a s.a.e. to 145 Dawes Road, Fulham, London, UK, SW6 7EB Leaflets on PNI  or look on the website under leaflets.
