Getting help

Getting help early is very important for you and/or your partner, if things seem to be getting stressful. This may include seeking practical advice surrounding common parenting issues and challenges, or it may more specifically relate to seeking help, support and treatment for emotional and mental health problems which can commonly occur with the transition to parenthood.

Getting help usually involves not only getting timely and appropriate help for your partner, if they are struggling, but importantly also getting help for yourself.
