Thank you to Scott Mair, founder of @p_m_h_support for sharing his experience with us.

Let's work together and change perceptions. Men can be affected in the perinatal period, and need support with mental health and birth related trauma.

If you're struggling, please seek help from medical professionals and approved & registered counsellors.

You should be taking 400 micrograms of folic acid every day – from before you’re pregnant until you’re 12 weeks pregnant.

This is to reduce the risk of problems in your baby’s development, in the early weeks of pregnancy.

The Department of Health and Social Care also advises you to consider taking a vitamin D supplement.

Do not take cod liver oil or any supplements containing vitamin A (retinol) when you’re pregnant. Too much vitamin A could harm your baby. Always check the label.

Foods high in folic acid include fresh fruits & fruit juices, whole grains, dark leafy vegetables (spinach, broccoli, asparagus, romaine lettuce), beans.

Amanda ensures that our vital #saferpregnancy information is distributed where and when it's needed. It's a vital role that has helped to inform thousands of parents and maternity professionals about the simple steps they can take to reduce the risk of baby loss.

On December 3rd 2019, Amanda's baby boy, Sid, was born sleeping, when Amanda was 39 week's pregnant. Sid was Amanda's first child and she was heartbroken.

Slowly, Amanda learns to live as a mummy to a baby with wings - doing her best to stay positive and to make Sid proud. This is why Amanda works tirelessly with #teammama and we are so thankful that she's helping us.

Amanda now has, Kobie, a beautiful little boy, and continues to support us.

Our fantastic trustee Angie Bowles was featured on Meridian News, where they ran a piece about mum Sarah’s experiences during her rainbow pregnancy with Sebastian and the significance of continuity of carer for bereaved parents.

See if you can spot the MAMA Academy Wellbeing Wallet a couple of times in the report!

Continuity of carer is a model where parents have care from the same midwife during their pregnancy, birthing experience, and postnatally – and it has been shown to be linked to improved outcomes. The NHS is working on a transformation programme to offer continuity of carer to every pregnant person within two years.

As this news report points out, it is important that groups who have more chance of poor outcomes, such as certain ethnicities, get prioritised for these sorts of models. Here at MAMA Academy we completely support the calls to prioritise bereaved parents in subsequent (rainbow) pregnancies in this too. We are also delighted with the recent – long overdue – announcement that there will be specialist mental health hubs for bereaved mums who need additional support in subsequent pregnancies. We would welcome the expansion of access to these specialist services to include bereaved fathers and other non-birthing parents, for whom the anxiety and fear is no less real and no less impactful on their mental health.

Pregnancy after a loss is often a terrifying experience, and having consistent care from a midwife who knows the details of your previous experiences, your hopes and your fears is so important for these families. Having to explain your loss and your heightened anxiety repeatedly to different professionals increases pressure on these families. Along with other charities run by and for bereaved parents, such as ourselves, we completely support the calls made by SANDS’ CEO Clea Harmer in this report.

Pregnancy and raising children can be challenging for all parents. Quite rightly in maternity, the focus is primarily on women and birthing parents, but the stresses and strains can impact significantly on non-birthing partners too. Over the coming weeks, we’ll look into different aspects of the impact on mental health of all parents.

Today we’re focusing on paternal mental health with some thoughts from Chris, a member of #TeamMAMA.

A reduction in a baby’s movements can sometimes be an important warning sign that a baby is unwell.

From 16-24 weeks of pregnancy you should feel your baby move more and more up until 32 weeks. Movements then stay about the same until your baby is born.

It is not true that babies move less towards the end of pregnancy or in labour. You can start keeping track of your baby’s movement pattern from 24 weeks. If you think your baby’s movements have changed, don’t wait until your next appointment to report it.

If you think your baby’s movements have slowed down or stopped after 28 weeks, speak to your midwife or maternity unit immediately. It is very likely that they will want to see you straight away.

If you’re unsure whether your baby has moved because you are having a busy day, find some space and time to lie on your left side and concentrate on your baby’s movements for up to an hour. Don’t wait any longer, even if you’re still not sure.

Don’t rely on hand-held monitors, phone apps or Dopplers at home to check your baby’s heartbeat. Even if they detect a heartbeat, this doesn’t mean your baby is well and you may be falsely reassured.

There is a great video on our website from North West London Maternity - https://www.mamaacademy.org.uk/for-mums/babies-movements/
