Story

The North Wales Perinatal Team are going to walk, run, cycle or swim 141 miles each throughout the month of May. This is the distance from South Stack on Anglesey to Ribbelemere Mother and Baby Unit in Chorley. This is where we admit women most often for the highest level of support when they become unwell in the perinatal period. While the support they receive is undoubtably to a high standard this is a long way for women to be away from their homes and families while they recover.

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.
