A recent report from the University of Auckland has been analysing mental health issues that can plague mothers and pregnant people before, during and after birth. 

This highlights the intergenerational cycles of perinatal distress, and how it can cause health problems for the children themselves.
The research has also highlighted how Māori, Asian and Pasifika people are disproportionately affected by perinatal distress.

Liam spoke to Felicia Low, who worked on the study, about what Aotearoa needs to do to see maternal mental health better supported.
