Physical and Mental Health in the Postnatal Period


The Maternal Mental Health Alliance (MMHA) is a coalition of UK organisations with a vision to see all women across the UK get consistent, accessible and quality care and support for their mental health during pregnancy and in the year after giving birth.

If you have had or are about to have a baby do take a look at their website, full of amazing resources about maternal mental health, contacts and links to various projects. 

Here I talk about the strong links between physical and mental health in the postnatal period and the relevance of postnatal rehabilitation to improve both a woman’s physical and mental recovery after baby.
