Pregnancy and mental health

You may be searching for information as you are pregnant or know someone who is pregnant.

At Melo we are aware that being pregnant is a big life event and can be an emotional time. If you are experiencing a low mood or feeling depressed then it is important to reach out for help. You can find more information and advice on our website.

However, we are currently developing more content specifically for pregnant people. Whilst this work is in development we would recommend that if you are worried about the way you are feeling:

  • Reach out and speak to a friend, family member of medical professional such as your midwife or GP.
  • Visit the Healthier Together website which contains a range of information and advice for pregnant people/new parents.
  • Or visit the NHS Wales 111 website which contains information and advice, including a pregnancy guide. Links can be found below.
