Launch of YouTube channel and a global awareness video

A dedicated YouTube channel was launched on 22nd October 2017, called ‘IFWIP website‘.

This channel aims to raise awareness of the importance of mental wellbeing in every pregnancy. This would also explore how we all can work together to achieve this goal. Mental illness can develop for the first time during pregnancy or after childbirth, even if the mother does not have any previous mental health history. Therefore, the information and awareness are important for every single mother during pregnancy, regardless of the outcome of the pregnancy.

The first video (Perinatal Mental Health: Why should we address this in Pregnancy?) was published on the same day. This video is raising global awareness of mental health conditions during pregnancy and post-childbirth period, also known as perinatal mental health (PMH) conditions.
