Postnatal Depression & Anxiety

This blog began life as a place for me to share my experience of PND and anxiety.  It’s since broadened to a general parenting blog but I know lots of you have arrived here looking for PND support.  Therefore, I’ve decided to create this page to keep all of my PND & anxiety content in one place.

My Experience, Recovery & Life After PND

Anxiety Symptoms & How To Manage Them

Peer Support, Advocacy & Self-Help

Motherhood & PND

For help, support & the best routes to treatment, please see the resources page.  If you ever feel you wish to speak to someone who’s been there please come and message me on FacebookTwitter or drop an email to

Mental Health Research & Advocacy

I’m always keen to take part in any surveys, interviews or trials that will help develop research for future perinatal illness treatments or mental health services.

I’m also available for guest blogging, peer support and public speaking on this topic, as well as working with support groups and mental health charities.

If the above is something that will benefit you or your organisation please email
