i need help or support


Don't be afraid to ask for help when you need it. I do that every day. 

Asking for help isn't a sign of weakness, it's a sign of strength.

- Barack Obama

You've found our website.  You searched for help for a reason.  Perhaps you are unsure.  That's OK.  Please take your time and look below at the information and support we provide.   

But do not underestimate what a courageous step this is. 

Here at Cocoon we've been there.  We all have lived experience of perinatal mental illness and struggling as a new parent.  We remember how difficult it was to ask for help, to say we were not enjoying parenthood and it wasn't the fairytale we expected.  

Below you will find more information about perinatal mental illness and the services we provide.  

We are here, for you, for your family, whenever you are ready.
