It's time to upskill!
And become part of the solution to the perinatal mental health problems experienced by so many parents
The path to parenthood is very often a rocky and challenging one. Difficult fertility journeys, recurrent miscarriage, loss, premature birth, birth trauma and injury, difficulty feeding and sleeping are some of the very common troubles that parents encounter along their way.
However there is very little appreciation from the medical or maternity community of the devastating impact that these events can have on a person's mental and emotional health and wellbeing.
Between 10 and 30% of women experience postnatal depression in their first year, yet less than half seek support. Over half of this number are still experiencing depression after their postpartum year.*
A survey carried out by leading baby loss charity SANDS in 2019 found that 60% of bereaved parents felt they needed specialist support after their baby died, but were not able to access it on the NHS." **
For those parents who have experienced premature birth and NICU stays 16% experience PTSD symptoms afterwards according to a 2018 survey by the charity Bliss, yet 45% said they had no access to specialist support afterwards.***
Additionally many of these issues are taboo in modern western society which adds to peoples experience of isolation, shame and loss of hope.
For parents experiencing these issues there is very little specialist support available from professionals who understand the nuances and challenges that arise for perinatal mental and emotional health. Yet there is a huge desire and need from parents to be well at this time.
This is why TBR College of Perinatal Emotional Health is passionate about sharing knowledge, skills and therapeutic frameworks with birth professionals who are already perfectly placed to offer support to parents who are suffering.

I believe we are now entering a new age of understanding about our emotional health and wellbeing and that a new generation of parents are more articulate about their feelings than ever before.
Additionally medical communities are also beginning to appreciate the importance of the mind body connection. Western medicine is waking up to the fact that poor mental health long term does indeed have an impact on physical health and to separate the two when thinking about holistic health is a mistake.
The health of parents is vital if they are to be expected to nurture the next generation of society well. To overlook the importance of good, optimum health at this life stage is robbing the next generation of the opportunity to experience good health and wellbeing too.
