Recognising Why Maternal Mental Health Matters

Recognising Why Maternal Mental Health Matters

Becoming a mom is a big deal! It's full of ups and downs. While we often think of it as a super happy time, for many moms, it's not always sunshine and rainbows. Some moms find it tough, especially when they're dealing with mental health stuff. But guess what? We're here to change that!

This month is all about shining a light on what new moms go through and getting rid of any shame around mental health.


Why should we care about moms' mental health?


Well, because when moms feel good, everyone wins! If moms are stressed or down, it can make things tricky for them and their kids. By talking about mental health issues, we can help moms feel better and get the help they need.


Here's why it's important:

Happy moms, happy families: Having a baby is a lot of work and can make moms feel tired and stressed. But when we talk about it and offer support, moms can feel better and enjoy their time with their little ones.

No more hiding: Some moms feel embarrassed to talk about feeling sad or anxious. But when we share stories and show we care, moms won't feel so alone.

Better for babies too: When moms feel good, they can take better care of their babies. It's a win-win!

Helping out saves lives: Sometimes, moms can feel really, really bad. But if we talk about it and offer help, we can stop bad things from happening.

How can we help?

It's easy!

  1. Learn about it: Knowing what moms go through helps us understand and be there for them.
  2. Be supportive: Just being there to listen or lend a hand can make a big difference.
  3. Tell others: Share what you know with friends and family. The more we talk about it, the better things get!

Remember, moms, you're not alone! If you need someone to talk to, you can call Postpartum Support International. They're here to help, in English at 1.800.944.4773, and in Spanish at 971-203-7773. You've got this! 🌟
