Sally Russell, co-founder of Netmums, who jointly founded the report, said antenatal depression can make it very difficult for parents.
Depression and anxiety can be common in pregnancy, sometimes making life very difficult for both the parents and new baby. Midwives can do a lot to help and reassure, so should be open with mothers and fathers-to-be about the condition and trained to spot the signs.
Those suffering often don't know who to talk to, so it's essential they know they can be open and honest about how they are feeling with midwives.
