Hi I don’t really know where to start with my post. The best thing to do is start at the beginning, I gave birth to the most adorable little boy nearly 12 months ago. Never suffered a day in my life with my mental health but my life was turned upside down when I brought my little bundle home. To cut a long story short, everywhere I turned there was no support groups, no coffee mornings nothing for women suffering with their post natal mental health. I was so disappointed in the system it was all big cities that had support groups. Now thankfully that I’m doing much better, I still can’t help but feel so frustrated that there is not more help offered everywhere. I have a great doc and a great support system but no one can understand and help and comfort you as much as a person who fully understands what you are feeling, I believe this whole heartily. So if there is anyone here that is from the above listed areas that wants to reach out and chat I would be more than happy to, start our own little coffee morning perhaps. One day at a time ladies, it will get better xx
Unfortunately Im not from Tipp, but good on you. I think its a great idea. A group like that on a smaller scale is so helpful, it would encourage people to talk and open up.
Good on you for bringing this up. My little girl has just turned one and I found the first 6-9 months very up and down ..it's harder than people think being a new parent and she was my second. I am.not in your area but would be happy to stay in touch online with you for chats.
