A new wellbeing resource for pregnancy and post-birth (Tommy's)
Tommy's is a digital tool, created in partnership with the Institute of Health Visitors (IHV), the National Childbirth Trust (NCT), Netmums, Public Health England (PHE) and the Royal College of Midwives (RCM). The resource: Your Baby’s Mum: A wellbeing plan for pregnancy and post-birth offers a helpful plan if you are trying to conceive or to guide you during your pregnancy and after your baby is born. In addition, the resource Mental health before, during and after pregnancy, is designed to help all pregnant women to think and talk about their mental wellbeing in the pregnancy and post-birth period, and to plan early for support and self-care after the birth. The tool is suitable and available for all pregnant women and can be completed at any point in pregnancy. The tool will help pregnant women make a plan for their mental wellbeing and it will offer extra support to those who need it during pregnancy. It has a tailored route for women who have suffered a previous pregnancy loss or premature birth, which acknowledges the extra anxiety this can cause.
