Being a parent after postpartum psychosis
Mums who have recovered from postpartum psychosis and their partners talked to us about being a parent after PP and the things they wish they had known. These pages are designed to support you with common worries at different stages of your child’s development.
You might find it difficult to take in information during the early days and weeks of recovery. You could ask someone to read these pages with you, or show you parts that might be useful.
