Taster Course – BuggyBootcamp
Meet Nicola Ostler from BuggyBootcamp Ely.
As well as running BuggyBootcamp, Nicola is also part of Cognitive Sports Therapy. Here she talks about maternal mental health and after discussing what postnatal depression is and sharing her own experiences, suggests ways in which you can find help for yourself or a new mum you might be concerned about. Nicola then guides you through a tabata style workout that you can join in with because exercise always contributes to a feel good factor.
One of the triggers for Nicola’s depression was difficulties with breastfeeding. You can find support with breastfeeding in East Cambridgeshire via La Leche League East Cambs, or Ely Milks, or you could contact your Health Visitor or GP.
If you are struggling with your mood after having a baby, seek support from your Health Visitor or GP. Find out more the specialist Perinatal Mental Health Team here.
