My name is Danielle and I am 25 years old. I have been with my husband Glynn for 9 years and we have 2 beautiful children. I had Jessica when I was 18. Everything seemed like it was going well. I enjoyed going to play group and doing all different courses. I then fell pregnant for Joshua and I was really happy. Jessica was 2 when he was born. This time it felt different. I was very tearful, I stopped going out and I knew something was wrong.
Glynn helped me to admit that I was suffering from post-natal depression and I went to the doctors for help. After a few months I started to feel better and started to go back out and enjoy being a mum. This then led me to do an apprenticeship in youth work at the Teenage Parents’ Project. I then started working with Bluebell. I enjoy being the Bluebell Buddy as it is nice to give the mums that extra support that I wished I could have had.
My name is Glynn and I am 27 years old. I am a dad to 2 children, Jessica who is nearly 7 and Joshua who is nearly 5. When my wife Danielle had my 1st child Jessica, everything seemed to be going well. When my son Joshua was born my wife went through bad post-natal depression. This for me was a hard time in my life, I felt like I was trapped and there was no support for me. This is why I am aiming to make a difference and give the dads some help when it is needed. I hope to be able to provide a support network for them to access.
