Emily set up MummyLinks after struggling with Post Natal Depression. It’s an awful disease that 1 in 4 mums struggle with post natally (and 1 in 10 dads). MummyLinks isn’t just for mums who struggle in this way, but with so many mums struggling it’s important we all know what to look out for and how to help.
This is an app that mums can sign up to during pregnancy. It gives them hints and tips throughout, and supports them to 6months.
The app has been designed with parents and professionals to help give baby the best start in life and support mum’s health and wellbeing.
