The main aims of #PNDHour :

  • To provide a safe space to discuss topics surrounding pre and postnatal illness.
  • To help connect those affected by the illness, and provide support for each other.
  • To increase awareness and encourage open conversations about the illness.
  • To discuss where improvements could be made in all areas of the support provided for those affected.

I hope as we continue to connect and discuss perinatal mental illness openly, honestly and without judgement, we can help break down the stigma attached to this illness and bring together charities, groups,professionals, families and importantly the mothers affected by perinatal mental illness for peer support.

Anyone is welcome to join, its held every Wednesday at 8pm(gmt) with myself on Twitter just use the #PNDHour hashtag to join in!
