The Maternal Mental Health Alliance (MMHA) is an independent charity and coalition of UK organisations with a vision to see all women across the UK get consistent, accessible and quality care and support for their mental health during pregnancy and in the year after giving birth.
Maternal Mental Health
More than one in ten women develop a mental illness during this time and if untreated these illnesses can have a devastating impact on women and their families.
