We believe that people who are pregnant and new parents deserve support.
We recognise that having a baby brings lots of stresses and strains as well as joy and sometimes women just need space to talk things through. NHS England estimates that one in five women experiences anxiety and low mood during pregnancy and early parenthood,
Funds for a free counselling service (often used by pregnant and postnatal women in the Frome area) were cut in 2016; a small dedicated team of women then came together to create a new bespoke counselling service specifically for women who are pregnant or in the first year of motherhood. By providing a free professional counselling service, we aim to help women overcome feelings of anxiety and depression before they escalate into serious mental illness and also to help women get off to a positive start with their baby, with lifelong positive effects for everyone concerned.
Frome Birth Talk provides the only free, face-to-face counselling service specifically for pregnant and postnatal people in the Frome area.
Everyone at Frome Birth Talk want to let you know that we're doing our part in protecting the community's health during these challenging times. We are offering our counselling services in person (appropriately socially distanced), online and via telephone, our drop in group is now back (with fewer places and following safety guidelines), and we have a new YouTube channel with some of our antenatal preparation sessions.
Stay safe everyone! Wash your hands...and contact loved ones if you're struggling.
