NCT Head of Knowledge, Sarah McMullen comments on Adele sharing her experience with postnatal depression in the latest issue of Vanity Fair.

Commenting on Adele’s experience, Sarah McMullen, NCT Head of Knowledge, said: 

“Adele is incredibly brave for speaking out about her battle with postnatal depression. Her honesty will help break the stigma around postnatal depression and stop women in the same situation feeling so alone.

“She offers some great advice about mums talking to other mums, friends and family about their feelings. Speaking out can be such a hard thing to do but it’s often the first step on the road to recovery.

“Getting help early can make all the difference. If you feel something is wrong don’t suffer in silence, speak to your midwife, health visitor or GP.”
