Maternal Mental Health

I have received a number of emails from constituents concerned over the support available for new mothers. Parenthood can be very demanding and it is essential that the necessary support for peri and post-natal health is available and accessible when needed.

Therefore, I forwarded the concerns of my constituents to the relevant ministerial team at the Department of Health and received the response below.

I hope the above provides some outline of the government’s intentions with regard to peri and post-natal health.
