Story

10 days after giving birth I became very poorly. I subsequently spent 8 weeks in a Mother and Baby Unit in Exeter getting better. I want to help raise awareness of Postpartum Psychosis with the help of my friends! I’m walking 5 miles a day in May to help fundraise for Action on Postpartum Psychosis to help other mums in need.

Action on Postpartum Psychosis (APP) is a UK charity. We’re here to make sure mums, parents and families are supported through postpartum psychosis – a severe, but treatable, form of mental illness that occurs after having a baby and affects 1400 new mums in the UK each year.

We offer information and peer support, facilitate ground breaking research, raise awareness and campaign for improved services.

Our life changing peer support network helps women and families affected by postpartum psychosis feel understood, supported and less isolated.
