General Details

A new perinatal support service aimed at pregnant women and new parents in Ipswich and East Suffolk. An exciting new partnership between Suffolk Libraries, Suffolk Mind, Children’s Centres, Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust and Get Me Out of These Four Walls.

Maternal mental illness affects up to 20% of women and covers a wide range of conditions. If left untreated, it can have significant and long-lasting effects for women and their families. The aim of the project is to help reduce isolation and improve emotional wellbeing for new parents.
