PREGNANT women are being urged to 'call the midwife' if they have any concerns about their mental health or emotional wellbeing.

West Yorkshire Health and Care Partnership says it's keen that prospective mums should access information and support at the earliest possible stage of pregnancy.

Rebecca Thomas, specialist maternal mental health midwife, says: "Every pregnancy journey is different, but seeing a midwife early is proven to deliver better outcomes for both mum and baby. Midwives understand that pregnancy can be difficult for some people and that mental health may be affected. People who are concerned about how they're feeling or need advice about their medication should speak with their midwife, who will refer them, if necessary, to the appropriate service."
