The whole reason for me creating Mother Deer is to raise awareness and start more conversations about the reality and importance of post natal mental health.
I am very passionate about what I do as my whole business idea comes from a place of lived experience. In 2016 after the birth of my daughter I was diagnosed with post natal psychosis, post natal depression and anxiety. It was the darkest and scariest time of my life.
If I can help even just one Mum to not feel the way I did through my own postnatal mental health struggles then I will feel I’ve achieved something great. So I am sharing my story in parts here, to help start those much needed conversations in the hope it will help others.
