Having a baby is one of the most significant life events. It is often a source of great happiness but can sometimes be difficult. You might find pregnancy, giving birth and caring for your baby more difficult than expected. Maybe you’re feeling low, depressed or more worried than usual. You might be worrying that you aren’t bonding with your baby or that your difficulties are affecting your relationship with your baby.
If you are feeling any these things, Enfield Parent Infant Partnership (EPIP) might be able to offer you the right kind of help and support. Talk to your health visitor about EPIP or visit the EPIP website.
