Mental health effects everyone. We all have times when we feel down or stressed. Most of the time those feelings pass, but sometimes they develop into a more serious problem. This can happen to anyone.
Pregnancy and the first year after having had a baby is a really important time for your mental health. As part of your routine care through the NHS, your health care providers should be considering your emotional wellbeing as well as your physical health. There are specialist services in place to support you during these times should you need them.
We would like to gain an understanding of your experiences and recollections of the conversations about your mental health and emotional wellbeing with midwives, health visitors and GP’s during the antenatal and postnatal period. We would like to gather this information in order to identify and learn from good practice and to identify areas for improvement that may impact on the prevention or identification of mental ill health and/or access to specialist services, as well as reducing stigma.
This survey is for women who are currently pregnant or have had a baby in the last 12 months in Yorkshire & Humber. If a question does not apply to you, please leave it blank. The survey is completely anonymous.
We would be very grateful if you could take the time to complete this survey your insight is valuable and will help us improve future services.
