As well as postnatal depression, a number of other mental health conditions can also develop after giving birth.

These include:

Speak to your GP or health visitor if you think you may have developed an anxiety disorder or OCD.

Contact your GP immediately if you think that you or someone you know may have postpartum psychosis: it is a medical emergency.

If this isn’t possible, call NHS 111 or your local out-of-hours service.

Remember, if you think there’s a danger of immediate harm, call 999 and ask for an ambulance.
