"When the doctor told me it was postnatal depression, that sense of relief that I was not going mad."
Today Fern is joining mums and dads previously affected by maternal mental health problems to share their experiences. Join the conversation @SportRelief #MumTalk.
Cash raised through Sport Relief has been helping to fund maternal mental health projects in the UK since 2010. These projects include the Bluebell Care Trust in Bristol, and the Maternal Mental Health Alliance’s ‘Everyone’s Business’ campaign, which raises awareness of the importance of maternal mental health issues at a national level and is helping women and families across the UK to access specialist support.
