As many as 1 in 5 women experience some type of perinatal mood and anxiety disorder and it’s estimated that 7 in 10 downplay their symptoms
Leading healthcare provider Nightingale is teaming up with Safe Space to host a virtual fireside chat where mums and mums-to-be can tune in for expert advice and practical tools to help them navigate the early days of motherhood. Held during Maternal Mental Health Month on Monday 24th May, from 4.30-5.30pm, the interactive session is led by Nightingale’s Public Health Practitioner Julia Youll and Educational Psychologist Stacy Moore CPsychol.
Julia is based in Dubai and has several decades of nursing and primary care experience, with many of those spent as a health visitor in London. UK-based Stacy is the founder of the educational psychology company Inner Circles, and founder of The Nesting Coach, a platform that supports women in their transition into becoming a mother.
Julia and Stacy will cover aspects including the physical, psychological, and emotional changes motherhood brings, spotting signs of depression, and places to go for extra help and support, as well as the impact that COVID has on parents welcoming a new baby away from their families. There will also be a Q&A where attendees can submit questions via an anonymous online chat.
