Last week saw a daytime ccramhp discussion on postnatal mental health. We were joined by new visitors, including several babies! The meeting worked well as an opportunity to discuss the medicalisation of postpartum low mood and consider the potential for alternative ways to support new parenthood such as babywearing, peer support and building community networks. It was great to have representation from morcambe bay slings plus the mental health midwives and Mind, all of whom swapped information in order to better link up in future, this alone was a great achievement! If you couldn’t make it but are interested in anything from the session feel free to get in touch with christina: ccramhp@gmail.com
