Perinatal Mental Health Community Services

A new Perinatal Mental Health service was launched on 1 September 2017.

This service provides specialist care for pregnant women and new mothers.  Pregnancy and childbirth is a uniquely vulnerable time for women where there is a substantially increased risk of developing an episode of mental illness – the most likely time in a woman’s life.  This service improves access to appropriate specialist interventions from specially trained staff.

The service is for women who are experiencing more severe mental health needs and can be accessed by referral from your GP or health professional.

For women with mild to moderate needs they can self-refer to the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) provided by Turning Point Talking Therapies.  Contact details below:

  • Tel:  01924 234 860
  • Monday to Friday between 8.00 am and 8.00pm
  • Saturday between 9.00 am and 6.00 pm
  • Sunday between 10.00 am and 4.30 pm
  • Complete the online referral form and you will be contacted where possible within 48 hours

Kerry O’Neilll Sleep Nanny Consultant

Does your little one wake frequently in the night? Or are they up early in the morning, ready to start the day when you really aren’t? Are you dreaming of a good night’s sleep but just don’t know where to start?

I know exactly how you feel – when I had my little boy, I knew I’d be sleep deprived, but I didn’t realise quite how exhausted I’d be.

Eventually, my husband and I decided we needed to do something about it, but really didn’t know what the best thing to do was, or how we’d summon up the energy to do it!

 I avoided “sleep-training” for a long time because I thought it would mean leaving my child to cry, which I wasn’t prepared to do, then a friend recommended the Sleep Nanny method, which is a gentle and gradual approach, designed to maintain a secure attachment between the child and parent…I was sceptical to start with, but we quickly saw results and went from bouncing our little boy to sleep for hours at a time, to all of us getting a good, restful and restorative night’s sleep.

Since then I’ve become passionate about children’s sleep, so I trained with the Sleep Nanny and have been helping sleep-deprived families ever since!
