Perinatal Mental Health Project

The Perinatal Mental Health BME Peer Support Project is run by FWT – a Centre for Women. Working alongside the MAMTA Programme (FHLS) and the Perinatal Mental Health Service.

The aim of the project is to educate and support BME (Black and Minority Ethnic) women in Coventry through antenatal and postnatal period around their emotional wellbeing.

If women are experiencing baby blues, have low mood or feeling anxious around the birth of the baby our Perinatal Mental Health Peer Worker will offer support.
We will be working with the Perinatal Mental Health Service and other health professionals and will make referrals to relevant agencies where appropriate.
