Maternal OCD is a voluntary organisation dedicated to raising the profile of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) for mothers. Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is a debilitating anxiety disorder which strips women of their fundamental right to enjoy motherhood. Maternal OCD is co-founded by two mothers, Maria Bavetta and Diana Wilson, who have experienced and recovered from extreme OCD.
Maternal OCD Aims
We have three primary target audiences to ensure the relevant information is accessible at the right time for a sustainable recovery, pregnant women, new mothers and motherhood health professionals. We aim to:
Raise the profile of OCD amongst health professionals working with mothers to help identify this disorder more efficiently,
Raise the awareness of OCD for mothers-to-be to reduce the onset probability of OCD developing;
- Provide easily accessible resources for mothers with OCD to enable them to recover more quickly.
