There's a really good women's counselling centre in Birmingham whose therapists specialise in postnatal depression. They want to carry out more research into pnd for older mums (those aged over 30 years old) but no-one seems to want to come forward, could you share any ideas as to why this might be?

Maybe 31 year olds don't consider themselves "older mums"? Poor choice of label, I'd say 37+ is "older".

I wouldn't consider 30 old. I do consider myself borderline now at 37. I understand biologically that's old but its not mentally. Needs better phrasing to appeal.
