Nourish Your Mind

Last Updated on : 5th June 2018


Maternal mental health was, until recently, a subject few people spoke about, but thankfully that’s no longer the case. As more men and women have opened up about their struggles there’s been growing acceptance of these issues. That is, of course, a positive thing, but it does bring with it increased demand for more support services to help those in need.

Official figures show that more than 140,000 mums each year suffer mental health issues in the perinatal period (before and after giving birth). But with maternal mental health being an underdiagnosed and undertreated public health issue the figures are likely to be much, much higher.

Thankfully, a group of west London mums are stepping in to help. They’re about to launch a new app called Nourish. They want good health and wellbeing to be accessible to all mothers across the country and to make motherhood a less stressful experience. Their app will offer a wide range of resources including practical guides, relaxation techniques, yoga and mindfulness exercises. Through it, they want to show women the importance of looking after themselves as well as their families.

Sara Campin came up with the idea after her own experience of becoming a mum – which took a toll on her mental health. “As mothers we often put so much pressure on ourselves to be the perfect mother, wife, friend, daughter, colleague, and put ourselves and our mental wellbeing at the bottom of the list. I certainly did for many years and it was detrimental for both me and my family.”


S
ara’s determined to help other mums in the same situation and has spent a great deal of time and effort researching and designing the app. She has a strong team of experts behind
her – psychologists, psychiatrists, happiness coaches, mindfulness experts and yoga teachers – and they’re all equally as passionate about the cause.

“When I had my daughter nearly 8 years ago”, explains psychologist, Suzy Reading, “I really struggled. In the midst of chaotic coinciding life events, it took me a long time to find the support and understanding I needed as a mother. I am passionate about helping other mums avoid the energetic bankruptcy I experienced and I am thrilled to be involved in this exciting project.”

To launch this social enterprise and kick start their crowd funding campaign, the Nourish team will be holding two events in London in June. One in East Sheen and another in
Westminster. There’ll be inspirational speakers, goodie bags and a glass of prosecco or two.

Information about the project and the launch events, including how to book can be found on the website: https://www.nourishyourmindapp.com
