Postnatal Depression

As an experienced obstetrician, Dr Cole is aware of the risk of postnatal depression to new parents. Postnatal depression affects roughly one in five new mothers with children aged 24 months or less, making it one of the most common conditions affecting new parents. Awareness of this condition is rising and help is available – please refer to the below links or speak to Dr Cole if you are concerned about postnatal depression.
