The NSPCC Pregnancy in Mind service is for pregnant women who are experiencing anxiety and/or depression. We know that pregnancy can be an anxious time for many women and that the current circumstances are likely to be causing additional stress and uncertainty.
We usually run a group work programme but as we are currently unable to offer this we are offering a remote one-to-one service.
The service will offer approximately 4 x weekly sessions. The focus is around reducing anxiety/improving mood and providing techniques and strategies to manage this. Once you’ve contacted us a worker will be allocated and they will be in touch to have a chat with you about your needs so they can make sure the sessions offer you the support you need.
Contact will be by phone initially but then if you prefer we can use alternative media to support video contact.
Please get in touch to find out how we can offer you support.
If a worker isn’t immediately available then someone will get back in touch as soon as possible.
Please leave your name, contact number and email address.
