"Mental illness in pregnancy"

About: Durham, Darlington and Tees

(as the patient),

I had a bad exprience when I had depression while I was pregnant with my first baby at Consett Medical Centre when a midwife and a doctor laughed at me when I told them I was not looking forward to the birth because of my mental illness. That I was not getting treatment for this had put me off for life in having anymore children.
