Mums Sandra Igwe and Jen Henry both experienced anxiety after childbirth, but say they found it difficult to discuss these issues in the black community.
Sandra told BBC Minute:
“There is a pressure for black mums to be superwomen, leaving little room to speak about their problems.”
As a result she set up The Motherhood Group – a support network where black women can talk about the issues they are facing.
Around a fifth of new mums in the UK suffer from mental health problems.
