I experienced post natal anxiety and depression after the birth of my daughter. I was really struggling with breast feeding, and due to moving to a new area, I felt very isolated and was struggling to meet new people and to get out and about with my baby. I accessed support through my local sure start centre, where I got invaluable help with breast feeding (and still carrying on with the breast feeding journey). I was assigned a befriender volunteer who came to visit me on a weekly basis- with their support and support from sure start staff I gained the confidence to get out and about with my baby and to meet some new mums who I now socialise with. I feel so much more confident and happy.
