Maternal Mental Health Service (Silver Birch Hubs) are celebrating their one year anniversary in March. The multi-disciplinary team is made up of psychological therapists, midwives, peer support workers and administrative staff and encompass all of Mersey Care’s CARES values in everything they do.

The team have been praised for their great resilience, enthusiasm and innovation whilst the service has still very much been in development. Without their hard work, passion and dedication, the service would not have achieved so much in such a short time. 

Patient feedback

“The service has been life changing for me. The positive impact it has had on my life and outlook on life is something I never thought was possible. The care and support received by Anna and the team was second to none and I can’t thank them enough.”

“Thank you so much to the team at Silver Birch, especially Carmel who supported me throughout my journey with the service. From our first encounter I knew I was in the right hands. Having experienced a very traumatic first birth and a subsequent  recent termination for medical reasons it had a massive impact on my pregnancy and caused a lot of anxiety and distress. I was able to talk about my traumas in a very safe place with no judgement and validation of how I feel. The love and care received by the Silver Birch team has been invaluable.”

“I am so thankful for the Silver Birch. I felt the support I had was like wrap around care, that consistently helped me process my anxiety and fears through each stage of pregnancy in a safe place I felt listened to and seen I cannot thank Silver Birch enough.”
