Heads Together www.headstogether.org.uk

Too many breastfeeding women suffer symptoms of anxiety and depression and dont seek treatment because’

  • they are ashamed
  • they are frightened they may be seen as not a good enough mother and at risk of having their baby taken into care
  • because healthcare professionals may not support ongoing breastfeeding
  • they are worried that medication passing through milk may affect their baby
  • they just find asking for help too hard

Our mental health varies every day and within every day – we move up and down just like a petrol guage. And that is normal. Every day thousands of mothers are worried, anxious, depressed and tired. We need to support them and admit that we can all be affected at some time in our lives.

Support Heads Together www.headstogether.org.uk/about-heads-together/ and check the information sheets for drugs which can be used by breastfeeding mothers with depression www.breastfeedingnetwork.org.uk/wp-content/dibm/anti-depressants-oct14.pdf anxiety www.breastfeedingnetwork.org.uk/wp-content/dibm/anxiety%20and%20breastfeeding.pdf and bi-polar www.breastfeedingnetwork.org.uk/wp-content/dibm/Bipolar%20fact%20sheet.pdf

Fathers and grandmothers of the baby may be the first to notice that a mother may not be her normal cheery self. Dont ignore it, talk about it as a family, help the special mum in your life get help whether it be medication or talking therapy. Life with a newborn is a precious time, be honest about feelings as you will not be alone. Dads can also feel depressed and anxious – you dont have to pretend to be strong.

 

Let’s talk about mental health and make it normal – then we can move forward stronger www.headstogether.org.uk/about-heads-together/
