My project about perinatal mental health, And Yet often leads to people talking to me about their own experiences, or expressing concern about a friend or family member experiencing their own difficulties. Back in 2010, I did write a blog post about my own mental health experiences after having my daughter, but creating and sharing this project has made it clear to me that I need a more comprehensive list.
This post aims to be a central place where I can add links to websites and general information. Please do get in touch if you can think of anything I can add.
