Postnatal Anxiety


If you are prone to anxiety, there is nothing like the adjustmnt to motherhood to set your mind off!

This topic of Postnatal Anxiety has come up a lot over time, amongst the lovely mums I’m lucky enough to work with, so I thought I should investigate a little and share the information.

So …. What are the options if you do start to feel your mind is impacting on your well-being?

I asked our LOCAL experts (in pre and post natal support), for their view on this very question.

Here are some suggestions, to compliment the NHS route available to us all through our GP.
