Feeling low during pregnancy can be unexpected, particularly at a time when friends and family expect you to be ‘blooming’. If you made it to this website because you are (or someone you know is) pregnant and experiencing unexpected symptoms often associated with stress, depression and anxiety, you’ll realise through from this first ever online resource of it’s kind that you’re not alone.
This website was originally founded by me, Delphi Ellis, in 2004 following my own personal experience. Research in to ante-natal or pre-natal depression has suggested that at least 1 in 10 women are affected by stress, depression or anxiety-like symptoms in pregnancy. Designed with the motivation to help even one person, this website now responds to people from all over the world.
You may be anything but sparkling about your pregnancy right now but this site has been designed specifically to provide you with useful information and resources including a FREE guide to ante-natal depression.
Here you’ll find information about possible treatment options as well as some of your experiences relating to depression, stress and anxiety in pregnancy. You won’t receive a medical diagnosis through this website, but I can respond to your posts, answer some of your frequently asked questions and provide private consultations by email and over the ‘phone. Please remember to speak to your doctor or midwife first if you have any concerns about your health and wellbeing. I don’t coach you based on my own personal experience although you may find my story helpful. I am a fully qualified Counsellor and Dream Analyst who specialises in Helping you Sparkle™.
