This is for mom-to-mom support and non-urgent issues.
We aim to return emails within 24 hours so if you need to hear back from someone more quickly or if you are experiencing an urgent issue or an emergency see the telephone numbers above.


Our support volunteers are all moms who have experienced either a pregnancy or postpartum mood disorder themselves and they are here to offer you:

  • Mom-to-Mom support and encouragement, and to let you know you are not alone in feeling this way.
  • Information about the symptoms of pregnancy & postpartum mood and anxiety disorders
  • Information on what helps women to feel well again
  • Information on how to choose a healthcare provider who has experience in treating perinatal mood disorders if you need one.
