Pregnancy and birth can be a magical time for a family, but it can also be very tough and difficult to adjust to.
Adjusting to a new lifestyle, recovering from a traumatic birth and bonding with your baby can be difficult, so it’s important to look after your mental health at these times. If you do experience challenges with your mental health as a new parent, remember that you are not alone and there is a lot of support out there to help you.
If you are struggling with your mental health during pregnancy or think you might have postnatal depression, it’s important to get help as soon as possible.
You don’t have to share your details with us – there are lots of reasons why you might want to remain anonymous, which we will respect. All calls are confidential, and we will always seek your agreement before we share any of your details with other organisations. The only time we will share information without your consent is if we think there is a life-threatening situation, or if you or someone else might be at risk of significant harm. On these occasions we may need to contact the Police, Ambulance Service or Children’s Social Care.
We keep your chat data for up to seven years, and share anonymised data with the commissioners of this service. By using Parent Talk, you understand and give your explict consent to this.
Your email address will not be used for any reason beyond giving you parenting information, support and advice.
