Supporting parents’ mental health during pregnancy and the first year
Pregnancy in Mind is a preventative mental-health service designed to support parents who are at risk of or experiencing mild to moderate anxiety and depression during pregnancy and the first year after birth.
Parents-to-be are able to attend the programme between 12 and 28 weeks gestation (the middle trimester of pregnancy).
Pregnancy in Mind has two core elements:
- an antenatal group intervention delivered by professionals during the middle trimester of pregnancy
- a peer-support programme delivered by a team of volunteers and a volunteer manager that takes place both during pregnancy and across the first year after birth.
