Mums! Did you know that 1 in 7 mothers will experience post-natal depression? Chances are you know mums who've suffered from this debilitating condition.
The mental and emotional wellbeing of a mum is CRUCIAL.... If mum isn't happy, then it flows onto everyone around her. She suffers, the kids suffer, the whole family suffers.
But how do you know if you have PND? Do you wait till your GP or nurse at the childhood health center asks you? Do you jump online and poll online mothers groups?
How about using TECHNOLOGY!!!
I am super passionate about the emotional health of mums, it is behind everything that I do. I had PND three times and it was the worst experience. Not only was the experience of depression horrific, but having to feel like a failure as a mum because of the way I was feeling.
Knowing how many mums and families are affected by PND and how many of us (90%) have a smartphone, I've harnessed the power of technology to make recovering from PND a whole lot easier.
I am creating a mobile app that will help track and support your emotional health, no matter the age of your child. If you're feeling a bit rocky and not sure if feeling this way is good, then no need to wait! Monitor your emotions. Assess your wellbeing. Get connected with support services. Email notes / reports to treating practitioners.
Coming in 2019, The Happy Mum App will revolutionise the way we manage PND.
As an adjunct to talk-therapy it will provide mums with a way to play an active role in their recovery while normalising and taking the guilt out of it.
