Last week was Perinatal Depression and Anxiety Awareness Week.
Did you know that:
· 14 percent of new mums and 10 percent of new dads are diagnosed with postnatal depression each year?
· 10 percent of mums-to-be and five percent of dads-to-be are diagnosed with antenatal depression.
· And an even greater number are believed to struggle with significant parenting related anxiety.
These numbers are BIG - but they don't worry me.
