    Not sure if i've put this in the right section but... When i last saw my HV she said at the 6 week check she does a 'mental health check', i've never heard anything abut this, was just wondering if someone could tell me what this involves?! :?

    I THINK that could be where they ask you to complete a questionnaire to see if you have or are at risk of having post natal depression.
    If it is this then it's just a list of about 12 questions about your current mood which you should answer honestly so that they can assess you.
