If you are feeling this way you need to talk to someone.

Obviously as it’s a weekend it is harder to suggest who as I think your GP or midwife is first port of call.

Have you spoken to Samaritans?

If you feel that you may act on these feelings please contact 999 or your nearest medical establishment.

Speaking about these issues is your way of protecting your baby. Babies are not taken away from parents who speak about their emotional and mental state. Bottling up and reacting to it wouldn’t be healthy for you or baby.
