Scottish Perinatal Network (SPN) Newsletter – Issue 43 – May 2024

Posted by Anne-Sophie Hoffmoen - 31/05/2024

Dear Colleagues,

Welcome to another edition of the SPN Newsletter – Issue 43 – for May 2024.

There is something about the move into Summer, isn’t there? The amount of daylight hours has increased just a little bit each day since late March and suddenly you need sunglasses during your commute to and from work. Well, on SOME days anyway, it’s still Scotland after all. But even the rain is nicer, at least a bit warmer, and sounds more soothing bouncing off fully formed leaves.
We hope you enjoy this edition of our newsletter.

Remember to put on sunscreen, and please be aware that some SSRIs or anti-psychotic medications can hinder the body’s normal thermoregulation, so if that applies to you, anyone you care about, or people IN your care – take extra care 🙂

With best wishes for a lovely weekend,

The SPN Team
