An event we've held live several times in Edinburgh, I was determined to do an on-line event to support all the new and pregnant Mums who were having to go through lockdown, with less emotional and physical support. At a time when you are supposed to be feeling grateful and joyful, it is often the case that this is just not happening. In this event we talk about postnatal depression and anxiety, birth trauma and breast-feeding, about the huge expectations we put on ourselves as new Mums.

We were joined by an amazing panel and I'm including all the signposting and support that we discussed during the event.
