Pregnancy, and the birth of a new child can be both a joyous and an emotionally challenging time.
The Government recognises that women with depression both during and after pregnancy need care and support, not stigma. That's why early diagnosis and support for women and parents is so important, and it is midwives who provide the vital personalised, one to one care for women and families during pregnancy and childbirth.
That is why the Government has invested in over 900 additional midwives working in the NHS since 2010.
