Most people today have heard the term ‘baby blues’ used to describe a mild, short, period of depression which many women experience after childbirth.
Fewer people are aware that as many as 10% of all recently delivered women develop postnatal depression. You are not alone in suffering.

The Association provides a telephone helpline, information leaflets for sufferers and healthcare professionals as well as a network of volunteers (telephone and postal), who have themselves experienced postnatal illness. For a printed information pack send a s.a.e. to:- 145 Dawes Road, Fulham, London, UK, SW6 7EB or click on Leaflets on PNI for more information about PNI.
The work of the Association is essential as post-natal illness affects between 70,000 and 100,000 women and their babies in the UK every year. It is rightly called ‘the silent epidemic’.
The Association has produced a number of leaflets relating to PNI, both for mothers and the medical profession. Below are the two leaflets that we send to mothers or individuals who need information on the subject:-

The Association gratefully acknowledges the very generous support of Mr and Mrs J. A. Pye’s Charitable Settlement over the past 28 years. This support has enabled the Association to offer its services to many more sufferers, who otherwise we might not have been able to reach.The support of the Mr and Mrs J.A. Pye’s Charitable Settlement has enabled APNI to offer help to thousands of women over 28 busy years.
We urgently need to recruit women who have suffered post-natal depression and who are now better, to support mothers who are currently ill by phone or by e-mail. Please click here to request information about becoming a volunteer.
