It was not announced in the media pre-hand. Kensington Palace shared on its social media about the discussion.
Mental Health is a cause that is being supported and promoted by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry with a passion. Kensington Palace remarked,” The Duchess is keen to develop an understanding of the issues surrounding maternal mental health and to learn what support is available. At least 20% of women are affected by mental health problems during pregnancy or in the first year following the birth of a child. If left untreated, maternal mental health problems can have a significant and long-lasting effect on the woman and her family.”
The discussion was joined by the experts from Family Action, King’s College London, Best Beginnings, Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families and Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. In the discussion, the Duchess has spoken about the importance of having open conversations about maternal health, and the impact this can have on a family.
Catherine has a keen interest in the maternal mental health issue. In the March this year, Duchess attended the launch of maternal mental health films with Heads Together charity partner Best Beginnings at the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists in London.
During the launch, Catherine accepted her own fears and lack of confidence as a mother and stated,” It is full of complex emotions of joy, exhaustion, love, and worry, all mixed together. Your fundamental identity changes overnight. You go from thinking of yourself as primarily an individual, to suddenly being a mother, first and foremost.”
