Through funding from the Department for Health and Social Care, Lancashire Women can support parents and their families through our Starting Well and Family Wellbeing Service.

Having a baby is a life changing event.
It is normal to experience a wide range of emotions both positive and negative during your pregnancy, birth and up to your child being two years old. Sometimes, it can be really difficult to talk openly about your feelings.

Our Starting Well/Family Wellbeing Service offers emotional health and wellbeing support for parents and their families who have experienced neonatal care, neonatal loss, miscarriage, stillbirth, termination for medical reasons, health conditions, foetal medicine/rainbow clinics, pregnancy after loss, or for those experiencing mental health issues in the perinatal period.

Therapy can be helpful for those who want to examine their feelings and thoughts further. A therapist is there to help you to uncover your own insights and understanding of your feeling, and may provide tools/tips which may help.

We offer 1-1 talking therapy across Lancashire.

We have a team of therapists who are based on the NICU ward and in clinics in Burnley, Preston, Blackpool and Lancaster hospitals. Support can range from an quick conversation, or arranged weekly appointments which fit in around you. Your therapist will work with you in a way that is impartial, open, honest and non-judgemental.
