This week (the 3rd to the 9th of May) is Maternal Mental Health Awareness Week, an annual, week-long campaign dedicated to bringing awareness to and talking about mental health problems during and after pregnancy.
The campaign wants to raise awareness in the public as well as in health professionals and advocate for women affected by these conditions. The organisation that leads this campaign is The Perinatal Mental Health Partnership UK and they also use this yearly event to signpost where women and their families can access help and support if they need it and get them on the road to recovery.
I started my company Secret Whispers quite by accident. It was January 2018 and I was reading an article that said “regardless of how amazing you may think your pelvic floor is, the likelihood of developing an issue goes up by 50% with the onset of perimenopause”.
