Making a referral

You can attend PiM if you or your partner are between 12 and 26 weeks pregnant, and are at risk of or are experiencing mild to moderate anxiety and / or depression during pregnancy,

  • You are worried about a previous pregnancy and how it affected you and your family
  • You are away from family/social support networks
  • You have experienced previous anxiety or depression and/or are concerned about Post-Natal depression
  • You are feeling stressed, or just ‘not right’

You can refer yourself, or ask a professional such as a midwife or GP to refer you.
