The U.K's first Maternal Mental Health Awareness Week will be running 1-7 May 2017 and the week is being led by the Perinatal Mental Health Partnership. During this week the PMHP are focusing on how and where women can seek help and support for Mental Health. Women and their families need to know where they can find help and support for perinatal Mental Health problems. Today they are posting about self care focusing on how it's okay to focus on yourself and how to do this... follow them on FacebookPerinatalMHPartnershipUK or on twitter @pmhuk #perinatalpositivitypot spread the word this is such an important message #positivity #maternity #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness

Last week was Maternal Mental Health Week and we've read so many wonderful posts about women overcoming mental health issues. We've been struck by the honesty that @mrshhayward shares about her "White Flag" moment when she sought help for OCD and anxiety and are so grateful she shared it with us. Article on our website.
As hard as it may be to believe sometimes, you are never alone and there are always people around who will want to listen, support and help. And if you don't know who, I promise - you can count on us. "It's healthy to talk. It's good to listen." #LetsTalkRealParenting

Day 26: Support
This social model of peer support enabled my journey from illness to wellness. I credit #MothersforMothers with saving my life and supporting my children through their early years.

I spent a lovely morning with the Women of the Fit and Fab group at #KnowleWestHealthPark talking about Maternal Mental Health and the services at Mothers for Mothers. I was incredibly touched to receive a donation at the end which will be the first donation towards the Christmas Party for our support groups.
A big thank you to @benjaminmurphy_ for allowing me to use his art to explain my recovery.

Day 29 Sleep
During pni and after my recovery I "lost" the ability to sleep. For over six years I managed on 2-3 hours a night, described myself as a horrible sleeper and thought it was something I would always have to live with. Just by chance I mentioned it (moaned about it) to Georgia when I was at Evolve. She did a very short piece of work with me to change my sleep strategy. That night I slept all night waking every hour or so. The next day she told me I was testing my new sleep strategy. The second night over 7 hours uninterrupted sleep. That was 18 months ago and I am still a master sleeper, I have more energy, I'm more productive and less short tempered. I love being a master sleeper.
#sleep

Thank you Georgia

Day 27 Random Act of Kindness
A small act of kindness can make a huge difference to someone's day, especially if that person is feeling vulnerable. Let's not be random with our kindness ... let's make it standard 💙

Day 25: Music
@primalscreamofficial
Primal Scream ... Movin On Up
This track was played at my first son's funeral and at my second son's and my daughter's baptisms. It's the sound track to my recovery

I'm movin' on up now
Getting out of the darkness
My light shines on
My light shines on
My light shines on

#pmhphoto2017

Day14: #friendship
I have been truly blessed with all the friends I have met since all my babies have been born. Those incredible ones who caught me and held me after my first son died, those who dragged me kicking and screaming through pregnancies, those who helped me through my pni battles, those who I met in my recovery and always seem to know when I'm having a wobble and need them, those who help me with my crazy projects, giving up their time for me to be a control freaking diva. Way too many to name but I love them all and it's too difficult to chose a picture of just one of them. So here is a picture of me with my oldest friend who knew me before my life changed, she did things that no one should ever have to do for their best friend, she chose and bought an outfit for William to travel to his post mortem, she rang people to let them know he had died and to tell them arrangements for the funeral, she sat outside the delivery room while Joel was born and then made me toast. She put up with my depression and didn't try to jolly me through it, she tried to reassure me during my anxiety and did practical things for me, she looked after Joel when Trini was born and brought him to the hospital to see us. She is a brilliant example of how to parent. Through my darkest days she was patient when I would push her away and be nasty. She also waited patiently for me to endlessly pack and unpack bags. She walked beside me to my new normal. Not once did I give a thought for her loss, the loss of her best friend who had changed beyond imagination. Thank you Kate Knight for sticking it out with me... so lucky to have you in my life and just around the corner xxx

#pmhphoto2017
Day 13: #socialmedia
Social media can be great for connecting with others and accessing support during pni. However we rarely see the real #beige posts of life. Yes there are plenty of mummy satirical sites saying fml etc when the latest child related disaster happens ... but the ordinary everyday #beige of life rarely makes the status or post. I'm as guilty as the next of posting my smiling daughter with the cheese scones she has lovingly made ... but not posting the ruination of her brothers favourite tee shirt with my very special, ridiculously expensive, for special occassions only, handcream and the fight that ensued ... with me behaving the worst of the three of us. But equally I don't post my #beige days of ordinariness. .. like today. I had a short lie in, a couple of meetings this morning, now I have a mountain of washing to sort out in every room ... including draped over both staircases, a bulging inbox to work my way through, delivery boxes to unpack, quickly grab the kids from school, attempt some interesting questions about their day whilst shoving a snack in their general direction then more meetings til 9pm when I will throw myself in the general direction of the sofa and demand a hot cup of tea from my husband. Sadly many women look at others social media posts and feel they are missing out or not good enough. Just remember you rarely see their #beige. Here's a photo of mine (with a slither of turquoise thrown in for my self care 😉)

#PMHphoto2017
Day 12: #selfcare
I felt pretty much the same as @cooksferryqueen re self care. I'd never stumbled upon anything that worked for me except covering myself in turquoise. Today I am actually doing my self care ... it's spending time with my business coach Georgia at Evolve . It always helps me to reflect, understand and make changes which are more useful or make life easier. Today I have spent 2 hours doing something which would have taken my 4 days on my own so my self care gives me the gift of time! Everytime I leave here I am a better version of my new normal.

#PMHphoto2017
Day 11: #Gratitude
Gratitude to my Father and his generation. The sacrifices he made as a young man compromised his mental health in his later years. He was one of the lucky ones ... he came home. Remembering with gratitude those who did not.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

#PMHphoto2017
Day 10: #Nature
I love beaches. I love my dog. Walking my dog on a beach is one of my simple pleasures that makes my soul soar. When I had PNI it robbed me of the ability to take simple pleasures from my life. As I recovered these little joys gradually returned and now, having experienced life with no joy, these moments are just that little bit sweeter.

#PMHphoto2017
Day 8: #Motivation
These women and their families together with all the other women who make up Mothers for Mothers are my motivation. Women who have suffered and recovered from PNI who use that lived experience to help other women experiencing the same. The power of peer support! Mothers for Mothers have been doing it for 36 years and I get my motivation from the strength, dedication, passion and hard work of these amazing women.

#PMHphoto2017
Day 7: #Rest
It's been a long day today. Finished work about half an hour ago and then dealt with a slime in hair incident 💇 Just got the littlies to bed, making a cup of tea, and looking forward to snuggling up in my furry blanket with the festive edition of @elledecorationuk

#PMHphoto2017
Day 6: #Active
A photo with amazing Chloe, the tweeter behind our twitter, taken when we spoke about Maternal Mental health on local #radiobristol Life and work can get so busy for all of us, sometimes it's hard to be as active in raising awareness and reducing stigma as we would like to be but Chloe does a fantastic job for us, I'm very grateful to her.

#PMHphoto2017
Day 5: #Colourful
The right colour can significantly uplift your mood. I have turquoise running through me with occasional streaks of green and blue so my colourful is always Chrysocolla.
Chrysocolla is seen as an incredibly peaceful and soothing stone. It is said to calm the mind and the nerves through times of stress. It reduces negative thoughts and energies.
It helps in times of trasition and change.
It is both re-energising and calming.It draws out feelings of guilt and increases the capacity to love whilst reintroducing joy. It improves communication. Encourages self-awareness and inner balance, it imparts confidence and sensitivity. Chrysocolla is said to enhance personal power and inspire creativity. This stone has been used to help overcome phobias by drawing out negativity and encouraging motivation for change. It tells my story for me.

#pmhphoto2017
Day 4: #Family
These guys make my soul sing 💖

#pmhphoto2017
Day 3: #Talk
I hid my pni from everyone because I was so ashamed and I did not understand what was wrong with me. I did not talk.
I admire all the women who are brave enough to share their journey as it is happening. Being able to talk honestly and openly without shame or stigma is so important for recovery.
When the charity that saved me was in danger of closing I knew I had to speak up so that service would remain available to other families like mine who desperately needed their help and support.
This photo is my most nerve racking #talk at the RCOG on International Women's Day.

#PMHPhoto2017
Day 2: Emotion
PNI is a roller coaster of emotions.
When I tell my story I include the first time I felt an overwhelming rush of love for my daughter, it happened on a beach. Even now, this is the part of my story where I can hear my voice shake with emotion.
Since that day I have spent many more happy days on beaches with her and I am looking forward to spending many more.

BROKEN FANNY, a comedy play, is happening NEXT THURSDAY 22 JUNE with @emmakatejerrold at 💥@thepilotw4 #westlondon #chiswick
A brilliant night out for a cracking cause @pandas_uk
An evening of comedy and charity, raising awareness and funds for maternal mental health.

Broken Fanny is a one-woman show following a first-time mother's struggle through the early days. Tackling the unspoken feelings of despair and trapped isolation, social pressures of perfection and 'expected happiness' from well-meaning choruses that this should be 'the best time of your life’. A funny and moving show for all women who have discovered that effortlessly wafting about, contented babe in arm, is a highly edited version of reality. All of us have felt that everyone else is doing a better job. Yet none of us really has a clue what we’re doing. Let’s talk about that.

Doors 7:30pm. Show starts 8pm. PM me for tickets.

This week is the UK's first Maternal Mental Health Awareness Week, so important to put the spotlight on the mental health and wellbeing of mums!
Being a mum is hard bloody work. I've been lucky to have an amazing NCT group of mum friends who have been my support network; seven other mums who have been there to listen, provide advice, back up, and wine/cake on the days when it all feels a bit overwhelming. "As mums we are in it together - raising the future. We are a tribe of future makers. So let's support each other" - M. Hermer

It's World Maternal Mental Health Day today and the theme for today is Perinatal Positivity. A chance for people to share words of hope that helped them through their recovery. .
'Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly'.
.
Some of the darkest times of our lives, when we might feel that things can't get any worse, often turn out to be the times of the greatest growth and transformation. .
There were many times through my antenatal and postnatal depression and anxiety where I did think that my world was over, I felt like I couldn't go on any more. It was through these times that I realised my strength and with each day that I survived I grew stronger and stronger. .
Experiencing depression or anxiety in pregnancy or as a mum can be scary, lonely and painful when we are going through it and can be some of the most challenging times of our lives, but recovery is possible and things do get better ❤
