The Perinatal Peer Support Principles were co-designed by people with
lived experience, maternal mental health and maternity professionals,
organisations facilitating peer support, Mind and the McPin Foundation
The Perinatal Peer Support Principles were designed to give peer supporters the confidence to create and deliver peer support that meets the needs of women and families affected by mental health problems during pregnancy or the postnatal period. Adherence to them should help ensure that peer support during this important time is safe, inclusive, informed, that it benefits everyone involved and remains distinct from - but closely connected to - clinical perinatal mental health services.
Produced by Mind and the McPin Foundation, with support from the MMHA.
