Postnatal Depression


Postnatal depression is more than just a lack of sleep, but is a complex mix of natural hormonal, emotional and physiological factors. Studies show that meditation is effective at balancing mood, normalising hormone production, improving blood flow around the body, and clearing negative mental fog.

  • The problem

    Postnatal depression tends to strike in the first few months after childbirth, and can affect both new and experienced mothers. 

    We are becoming increasingly aware men can also develop depression after their partner gives birth. 

    In women, postnatal depression is caused by a variety of factors, including (but not exclusive to) extreme hormone fluctuations, previous experiences of mental ill health, birth trauma and sleep deprivation. 

    For men, witnessing their partner give birth (especially if things don’t go to plan) can cause huge anxiety, and if they lack support the demands of parenting can become very destabilising. 

    The impact can be truly debilitating and in some cases may develop into long-term depression. Help is often needed, and fast.

“Meditation was literally a life saver for me, post-partum; it allowed me to calm down when I was feeling sad, frustrated and lonely. By going into that calm place and reconnecting with myself I started to feel at peace, loving and very connected to my babies.”

"..I managed to switch off for long enough to get that floaty feeling people from Brighton swear by."
"I have a lifelong tool that has brought me calm, clarity and increased creativity"
"I've noticed that I’m no longer ruled by emotions – I can see when I’m angry or frustrated without being in that feeling.”
