No Mother and baby unit in Wales

No Mother and baby unit in Wales

There is no mother and baby unit in the whole of Wales.

We want the government to Open the unit again and invest in perinatal mental health services in Wales.

Why is this important?

When mothers who are suffering need specialist perinatal mental health staff. Also the bonding and attachment with the mother is so important.

The knock on effects of this illness is splitting families up and having huge effects on the next generation. The new report by MMHA says it will save the country money if the services was in place. Wales is 70 per cent lacking in support and families need help today.

Reasons for signing

  • This is an absolute scandal. Babies and mothers need to be prioritised so that there is secure attachment established .Babies are affected by poor attachment for the rest of their lives if early interventions are not in place. retired health visitor
  • I had PP 35 year ago in Wales. There was no provision for my care, and my husband managed to get me transferred to Oxford for a MBU
  • Because there should be aftercare for bereaved parents
