Jenny Ward

Volunteer at Stafford group

Hi, I’m Jenny. I’ve got 3 children aged 13, 7 & 5 and twins on the way. I was 17 when I had my first and really struggled with postnatal depression following his birth. This lead to me choosing to go uni to become a mental health nurse. I did struggle with my daughter to but had found much better coping mechanisms with my youngest and got through it quite well. When I heard Amy was going to start Sunflower I volunteered immediately. I had never really spoken about my mental health difficulties with anyone and suffered in silence. I really wanted to be able to support other mums who may be feeling how I did.
