Infographic: Taking Care of Your Mental Health

Throughout your pregnancy and once your child is born, it’s important that you take care of your own mental health.

This graphic shows the support available both before you get pregnant and at every stage of your pregnancy. It also covers the newborn phase and the weeks and months that follow. It will help you make sure you’re looking after your own mental health, and getting the right support whenever you need it.

Mum's Mind

Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust runs the first dedicated perinatal mental health ChatHealth text messaging service- called Mum’s Mind. This confidential service offers advice and information to support mothers during pregnancy and baby’s first year.

The service operates Monday to Friday between 9am and 4pm, excluding bank holidays. All texts will be responded to by a member of the perinatal mental health team within 24 hours. Outside of the working hours, you’ll receive a message back to inform you that your text will be responded to once the line reopens.

Mum’s Mind: 07507 330 026

The Mum’s Mind service is not a crisis service and does not provide general advice on baby care- this is available through LPT’s original ChatHealth service on 07520 615381 (Leicester city) or 07520 615382 (Leicestershire and Rutland).
