Talking to someone about your emotional wellbeing can help make sure you get the help and support you needperinatal mental health support
We offer maternal mental health and wellbeing support, advice and information to women, birthing people and their families in Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire. As mothers who have lived experience of depression, anxiety and isolation during pregnancy or after the birth our one or more of our babies, we understand how hard early parenthood can feel and how difficult it can be to ask for help.
Mothers for Mothers are delighted to have been awarded the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service. This prestigious award is the highest recognition possible for VCSE groups in the UK. It recognises the dedication, commitment and passion of all of the women and birthing people with a lived experience of maternal mental illness, who have generously given their time, skills and compassion to support others. We are so proud that our wonderful team have been honoured in this way. It is very emotional to think about all the families that they have supported over 40 years. The women and birthing people who we walk alongside on their journey to recovery are the inspiration for all that we do. This honours their bravery.
