W + H Maternal Wellbeing Service - Pilot
In 2013 Women + Health received funding from a private donor to set up a pilot project providing a service to a small group of young mothers and/or mothers-to-be who were struggling with maternal depression and finding it hard to bond with their (up to two year old) infants.
The project was named 'W + H Maternal Wellbeing Service' and offered friendly, non-judgemental and impartial early-intervention support to seven women. This consisted of an integrated programme of talking and body therapies. The women could choose whether to use the free crèche or keep their young babies in the therapy room with them.
