Research Updates

MAP Beginnings interviewed 41 women who were pregnant or had a newborn baby between July 2019 and January 2020. These women gave us their views on different ways of assessing anxiety, as well as telling us about their experiences of perinatal mental health assessment. A huge thank you to all the women who took part. The results of MAP Beginnings will be available soon.
