Bluebell Buddy Service


Bluebell’s trained Buddies have lived experience of managing depression and anxiety related to pregnancy and birth and can offer 1:1 support in the community or at our city centre based hub, Bluebell Place.

Having identified yourself (directly to us or via your health professional) as needing support with your emotional well-being, in your role as a new parent, having read our referral guidelines and completed a referral form, your name will then be added to our waiting list. Your local Buddy will then arrange to meet with you, when she next has capacity, for an initial assessment of your needs.

Upon completion of this initial assessment and it having been agreed that this is the best way of supporting you at this time, your Buddy will then arrange to meet you for an agreed amount of further visits either in the community or at Bluebell Place.
