The future

Please tell your health visitor/midwife if you have suffered with postnatal depression with a previous pregnancy. You will not necessarily have postnatal depression again, but you are more at risk.

You may have had previous pregnancies with no signs or symptoms of postnatal depression, however any pregnancy can result in postnatal depression.

Please explore the following sections for more information:

Midwives can offer extra listening visits, help with meeting other pregnant women through aqua natal, exercise groups, mother and baby groups, signpost to support groups, NCT etc, specialist postnatal depression support groups (either in person, internet or phone).

You can access helplines and support groups (there are usually some in each local area so ask your health professional)
