Breastfeeding and Antidepressants – Facebook Live Session with Wendy Jones tonight at 7.30 via the Perinatal Mental Health Partnership Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/PerinatalMHPartnershipUK/
It’s the UK Maternal Mental Health Matters Awareness Week 30th April until 6th May and our theme today is how to access support from health care professionals.
The subject of breastfeeding and anti depressants often comes up with there being lots of misinformation about what medications are safe . Wendy held a similar session during last year’s awareness week and it received 15,000 views and was a great source of information.
Do tune in at 7.30pm.
One of the main messages we want to give mums and families is to empower them with information on how to access support to help their recovery from maternal mental illness.
One of the main areas of concern from mums is if they can take antidepressants if they are breastfeeding. There are medications you can take whilst breastfeeding, so tonight, the pharmacist Wendy Jones will deliver a Facebook live session providing information
on what anti depressants can be taken.
This session will be a great source of information for mums and health care professionals.
To join the session, simply come to the PMHP Facebook page at 7.30pm.
