The Perinatal Emotional Wellbeing Service

The Perinatal Emotional Wellbeing Service (PEWS) is a service employed by SEPT to work alongside Midwives, Health Visitors, GP’s and other Integrated services to support women in the Antenatal and Postnatal period. PEWS aims to prevent postnatal depression and anxiety by working with women in the antenatal period to promote positive emotional wellbeing during pregnancy and can support women who are already in the post natal stage (up to one year after birth) who are experiencing symptoms associated with postnatal depression. The service will also offer support to women who have pre-existing mental health issues which may place them at a higher risk of experiencing emotional symptoms during pregnancy and after birth. We will work in partnership with any other services involved in order to provide the best quality of care for the individual.
