Dad Matters are working in collaboration with the Improving Me, Local Maternity System in Cheshire and Merseyside and Cheshire & Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust to deliver the Maternal Mental Health Service. The service supports local communities to access treatment and care if they’ve experienced loss, distress or trauma during pregnancy and birth.
Silverbirch Hubs are service that is made up of therapists, psychologists, assistant psychologists, specialist midwives and peer support workers. Their role is to identify distress that has come from your maternity, neonatal or reproductive journey. They work to support trauma, loss and fear around pregnancy and the maternity setting for those experiencing moderate to severe mental health.
There is ‘no wrong door’ approach when people are referred to Silverbirch Hubs and they work with other professionals to provide high quality personalised care. The service takes a multi-agency approach to supporting women and birthing people, with professionals from mental health and midwifery working in collaboration to provide a holistic offer to service users.
