Your baby has arrived but life is not quite what you expected! 

Are you struggling to cope with the symptoms of Post Natal Depression?  

You’re not alone, 1 in 10 new mums experience post-natal depression during pregnancy and during their child’s first year. Typical symptoms include: 

  • Feeling sad and low in mood 

  • Lack of energy 

  • Trouble sleeping 

  • Lack of concentration  

  • Feeling like you can’t be bothered 

  • Feeling agitated, irritable, hopeless and overwhelmed 

  • Not enjoying the company of your baby, feeling indifferent 

  • Thoughts of self -harm 

  • Some mothers have thoughts of harming their baby which can be very unsettling

Kingston Welcare’s PlayPlus Project help mums manage postnatal depression by bringing mum and baby/toddlers together to enjoy sensory play sessions. Our weekly play sessions include:

  • Sensory play, crafts, stories, song and movement  

Mums also have access to: 

  • 1 to 1 emotional support    

  • Small Group Peer support, via WhatsApp group sharing
