If you’re struggling, you’re not alone.

Many women, or their partners, feel low after having a baby. Postnatal depression affects one in every ten women in the UK alone.

It's important to get help early on to reduce the impact on your life, your baby, and your family.

About us image

What is postnatal depression?

Postnatal depression can start any time in the first year after giving birth. The experience is different for everyone. Some feel they can’t bond with their baby. Some are unable to face the day.

Regardless of the symptoms, it’s important to remember that help is out there. With the right support, most people make a full recovery.


If you’re concerned you or your baby may be in danger or are having suicidal thoughts, please call an ambulance using 999 or 112 or head to A&E.

How it works

If it matters to you, it matters to us

You don’t need to have a full idea of what’s wrong before speaking to us. If something is bothering you, or your symptoms are affecting your life, then we can help.

Our GPs look beyond your symptoms to address the full picture of your health. If you need help, we’re here to listen – no matter what you’re feeling.

"I thought I was the worst mother in the world, I couldn't bond with my child.”

When Ellie had her first child, she thought her 'baby blues' were nothing to worry about. Over time, her persistent sadness left her unable to get out of bed and struggling to care for her own child. Her low mood developed gradually, and made her feel detached from her new-born baby.



Ellie made the courageous step to get help from one of our GPs. With their support, she spoke to specialists that helped her understand her postnatal depression. With their help, she learnt how to cope.
 

Why would I see a GP
for my mental health?

Our GPs look beyond your mind to assess a complete, overall picture of your health. That includes looking at physical problems arising from their mental health concerns or mental health issues arising from physical problems. As well as environmental factors that contribute to how you're feeling in 40-minute appointments.

Our GPs train with mental health specialists to improve the way we evaluate patients. With their many years of experience, they're well equipped to look after your mental health concerns. Each doctor can put together individualised plans and goals to improve your overall wellbeing.

With the help of our GPs, you’ll be shown how to deal with your health concerns; understand what you can control, and what you can’t. It’s a full-bodied approach to care.
