In the UK, up to 1 in 5 mums and 1 in 10 dads experience mental health issues in the perinatal period - during pregnancy and a year after birth1.
Mental health issues during this critical time can make it difficult for parents to look after and connect with their baby. This can potentially affect a child's overall development.
In response, we've launched our 'Fight For a Fair Start' campaign - supported by Jo Malone London - to give babies the best start in life.
We're calling for all families to receive the support they need no matter where they live.
