1 in 5 new mums and 1 in 10 new dads experience perinatal depression and anxiety, yet the topic is still considered taboo.
This week Steph chats to Jessica Urlichs, a beautiful mum of 2 (soon to be 3) author and passionate spokesperson for perinatal mental health.
Jess very kindly speaks to her personal experience with postnatal anxiety, the tips that got her through her hardest days and advice on supporting loved ones going through this.
If you are suffering from postnatal anxiety or depression please reach out to the PANDA National helpline on 1300 726 306 or visit www.panda.org.au.
If you’re looking for an online community of other mummas to connect with, you can find our private KICBUMP page on Facebook.
Steph opens up about her own experiences around the hormonal shifts and emotions she experienced post the birth of her baby Harvey, and more recently the hormonal change since weaning off breastfeeding.
On this episode of the KICBUMP KICPOD Steph spoke with midwife Zoe to answer your questions on all things birth and beyond.
Harvey turns 1, so to celebrate, Steph reminisces on her first year of motherhood with Tracey & Emma from her mother’s group.
