As a parent, looking after your own emotional wellbeing will have a direct and positive influence on your baby’s emotional wellbeing. Acknowledging when you are stressed, anxious or tired is the starting point to receiving the help and support you need. Talking to the right people can often make a big difference.
Whether it's practical, emotional, or financial assistance you need, putting these supports in place early will help you manage your mental health and enjoy time with your baby.
The pages in this 'Wellbeing During Pregnancy & Parenthood' section will provide you with information and links to help and support you as a new or expectant parent, looking after both your and your baby’s mental health during the early years.
