The Parent and Baby StarTM

The Outcomes Star for perinatal mental health and well-being

The Parent and Baby Star has been developed for parents who may need extra support in the perinatal period (during pregnancy and the first year after having a baby). 

During perinatal period there can be a lot to deal with and many people have times where they struggle to cope, even when things go well. Parents talk about feeling overwhelmed by practicalities, finding it hard to go out, feeling low, depressed, anxious or fearful, or having other symptoms or physical health difficulties. Having some extra support at this stage can make all the difference.

The Parent and Baby Star was developed in collaboration with The Stefanou Foundation, East and North Hertfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group, Herts Valleys Clinical Commissioning Group and Hertfordshire County Council
