An ill mum may choose to speak with a support mum who has had PNI and recovered. She can offer the ill mum reassurance and support. A Dad can also contact one of the support dads who has experienced coping with the effects of PNI.

We are proud to work with Thumbswood Mother and Baby Unit where we run monthly support group meetings for mums with the severest forms of postnatal illness.
Our fundraising has enabled the unit over the years to have laptops for the mums to Skype their families and children, regular pampering sessions for the mums and new baby equipment.
Recently we have funded the creation of a sensory room for the unit to encourage stimulation and bonding between mum and baby.
Across Hertfordshire we liaise with local services providing talks about postnatal illness and the work of our charity.
These talks are available to all health professionals as well as families. To book a talk please email us and one of our trustees will arrange this service for you.
Our charity is committed to supporting both the ill mum and the dad at this difficult time.
We have an email account which is checked on a regular basis by our team so as to respond as quickly as possible.
Please visit our Contact Us page to email us.
Monthly group meetings take place on an evening to provide space away from the home, babies and family.
The group meets in a home setting to provide an informal space for discussion, friendship and support. Hot food and drinks will be provided.
