About Perinatal Mental Health Cymru















What PMH Cymru offers

Who we work with



At present we are developing a relationship with the Cardiff perinatal mental health team. They currently receive high numbers of referrals for women with low to moderate mood and anxiety who could perhaps get support in the community from PMH Cymru. We hope our relationship will grow and we are looking to work closely with them.




We also have links with
