Good news for Dads!
Bluebell has received funding to set up a Dads’ Zone and is now in the process of setting up a focus group in South Bristol to find out what support Dads really want. From what we’ve learnt so far, we think we’re going to offer a chance to meet up fortnightly, in the evening and definitely in an informal setting, We’ve recruited a Buddy for Dads too! Someone who has firsthand experience of supporting their partner with PND and will be able to offer other dads informal, friendly advice. We’re also very lucky to have James Costello PhD from the University of West of England involved with this piece of work as he has some real expertise in the field of working with partners of mums experiencing depression related to pregnancy and birth.
