The Pandas Foundation offers hope, empathy and support for every parent or network affected by perinatal mental ill health.
Pandas helps individuals and their families with advice and support about depression during pregnancy and after the birth. Their free helpline has a team of trained and dedicated volunteers, many of whom are studying and/or working within healthcare, midwifery or health services.
Call them if you’re struggling with helplessness, low mood, anxiety or have any concerns about your health during or beyond your pregnancy. You can also call them for advice and support if you’re concerned about someone you know.
You can also text ‘PANDAS’ to 85258 to be connected to a trained volunteer. The service is anonymous and is available 24/7
