    Forum moderators here; we’re very sorry you’re having such a difficult time coping with your anxiety and your OCD, while being a mum – and we want you to know how to access more help and support.

    Here are some resources for mothers with OCD that we hope you’ll find useful:

    Maternal OCD: this very helpful organisation helps mothers with OCD. Their website has lots of useful resources, especially in the “Help for Mums” section.

    Maternal OCD explains how you can access help and support: if you are suffering from OCD as a mother, your first step towards getting help is to see your GP – this will help with accessing the right support and treatment for you. You can read more on this page on their website

    OCD Action also has information about more support for OCD; some is for pregnant women and mothers. Visit our website to:
