It’s best to talk about it
It’s common to feel a bit worried about sharing your concerns with a health professional. Please bear in mind that many people struggle at this time of their lives: anxiety or depression affects up to one in five expecting or new mums and one in ten expecting or new dads. It can happen to anyone, and is nothing to be ashamed of. In fact, seeking help when you need it shows that you want the best for yourself and your family. And the earlier you can get the right support, the more likely you are to feel better quickly.
