The Perinatal Animation and Photography project aims to reduce the stigma around perinatal mental health. This feeds into priority 4 of the Leeds Maternity Strategy which is ‘To ensure that we support the emotional and mental wellbeing of women who are pregnant and ensure that those who experience any emotional problems during or after their pregnancy are well supported and offered the best care.’
The aim of the project is to reduce stigma about perinatal mental health by challenging the myths (‘I am a bad mother’ ‘my baby will be taken away’) and increase awareness of when and how to access help.
