“Everything was brilliant until 6 days after giving birth when everything changed. I began having health problems making me very ill. This then spiralled into a downward slope of postnatal depression and severe anxiety. I kept myself inside my house and wouldn’t go out as my anxiety took
over. To take a step into the outside world felt like a million miles away and this was affecting my relationship with my husband. Having regular visits from my Health Visitor I felt it was time to ask
for help, she referred me to Befrienders from Family Space. These people became my saviours so to speak. I became part of Time Out Group on a Monday, although the anxiety was playing overtime about leaving the house and meeting new people I knew I had to do this. I became part of Time Out and have been going now for 6 months and although I still have anxiety I can now leave the house and go about my everyday jobs. Family Space have supported me emotionally and are always available when I am in need of help. I also attend the Stay and Play sessions where I have maintained friendships with the other mums who also attend Time Out. With the help and support from Family Space I have been able to control my anxiety and depression and be able to live everyday life as it should, and I have been able to go back to work when I thought this would never happen.”

"Thank you for giving me the opportunity to re build the relationship I have with my son. We have moved on from using the contact centre now and I can still continue to have a relationship with him now." Thank you so much."
