Coping strategies for postnatal depression

I was recently interviewed with Liz Halliday, deputy head of midwifery at Private Midwives, by netdoctor.co.uk on the subject of postnatal depression (PND). With one in every 10 women experiencing some level of depression within a year of giving birth, it’s important to identify if it’s the baby blues, postnatal depression or simply plain exhaustion. When you have a baby you can feel like you are a totally new person, and nothing can prepare you for that.  It is completely normal to feel overwhelmed in the early days however if these feelings persist for over a week then it may be a sign something more serious is going on.

The article identifies the symptoms of PND and offers some simple yet effective coping strategies to help alleviate the feelings a new mother may be experiencing. Read the full article here.

Katharine recently shared details about these benefits with The Sun.  

"It is perfectly natural and even therapeutic for women to hold their bumps when pregnant," she told Fabulous Online.

Russell Brand Podcast Interview with Katharine Graves

It was a great pleasure to be invited recently by Russell Brand to be interviewed for his ‘Under the Skin’ podcast.
