Our aim

We aim to provide a range of services for those affected by Postnatal Depression including one to one home visits either at Cocoon Family Support or in the comfort of your own home.

Drop-in groups

We aim to provide a number of drop-in groups across London and to provide self help material and support services at these drop-in groups.

Counselling

We will provide a counselling service available to support families experiencing and recovering from Postnatal Depression.

Support

We are a service designed to complement statutory services which provide support to those affected by Postnatal Depression.

Open to all

We will ensure that all services are available to all women and men regardless of age, race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, physical abilities and religious beliefs.

Care and understanding

We aim to use our resources effectively to ensure families are receiving the best possible care.

We also will fight to help reduce the misunderstanding and stigma often attached to Postnatal Depression by taking part in positive media activities, by participating in training programmes and providing information aimed at Health and Social Care Professionals in London and surrounding areas.

About Us

Cocoon Family Support is a London based charity. We support families affected by perinatal mental health conditions and those who are struggling to deal with difficult emotions before and after birth.

Our mission

We are determined to provide a necessary and appropriate service previously not available for families in the London area. Our mission is to provide a safe and secure environment, that is easily accessible at all times.

Our story

Cocoon Family Support was founded by Jessica Warne. Jessica founded Cocoon after experiencing postnatal depression after the birth of her daughter. The charity is run by a team of dedicated volunteers, each with their own experience of perinatal mental illness. Here our founder and some of our volunteers share their stories. You are not alone.
