Post-natal Anxiety & Me Series

Post-natal Anxiety (1)

Welcome to the area on my blog dedicated to post-natal anxiety. If you have found this page because you think you might be suffering from post-natal anxiety then please keep reading. But also if you are here because you are curious, please keep reading too. Post-natal anxiety is very easy to hide but horrible to go through so if you recognise any of the symptoms or experiences I talk about in a family member or friend you might be able to really help them or at least give them a hug.


I suffered with post-natal anxiety after the birth of Little Man. It’s no secret that it was a miserable time for our family. We struggled to understand what was happening to me and why the Rachel that had been so maternal was struggling with even the basics of motherhood. Eventually after a lot of soul searching and lot of searching on the net I finally realised what was wrong with me and started to make some changes. I am in a good place most of the time now and am proud to say there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

My initial reasons for writing this blog were to help me through my anxiety and also to help others. With that in mind I have collated all of the posts (and one vlog) that I have written between January and now about my experiences with post-natal anxiety. Some of them are hopeful and reassuring, some of them are as honest as I could be and some of them are hopefully pointing people in the right directions for help if they need it.

I hope they help.

  2. It’s hard to talk about depression and anxiety and there is still a stigma attached, but reading posts and other people’s experiences can really help. Keep going lovely 🙂 xxx

    This is brilliant. I have struggled with depression since my early 20s. These type of problems affect your life more than anyone can know. But blogging has really helped me and it is clear that it has really helped you. Part of the wonder of blogging is that you can reach out and help other people. So providing this resource is brilliant. Well done! Thanks for linking up to #SundaysStars. Hugs Mrs H xxxx
