Supporting women overcome feelings of post-natal blues and depression

Pregnancy comes with many expectations about motherhood that don't become reality. One of those can be that we will automatically be filled with the motherhood and a close bond with our child. For many, motherhood can turn into sleep deprived days, feeling out of control and feeling down. Sometimes, this can pass with time but more often or not chatting to someone about how you're feeling and being proactive with resources out there can help you find greater happiness and empowerment. There are resources and support for you, including talking to your GP or your local health supplement shop or a mother and baby group (try your local church as many run free/cheap groups to support mothers).
