Perinatal mental health (PMH) problems are those which occur during pregnancy or in the first year following the birth of a child.

Perinatal mental illness affects up to 27% of new and expectant mums and covers a wide range of conditions.

If left untreated, mental health issues can have significant and long-lasting effects on the woman, the child, and the wider family.
