MUM Alexandra Clinton has thanked everyone who joined her in saying - #MeToo - yesterday.

Alexandra, 35, from Wilmslow, works for the NHS as a physiotherapist, and suffered severe post-natal anxiety when her 17-month-old daughter Roxy was born.

She started The Awesome Mums’ Brunch Club, a group which aims to help reduce the stigma around perinatal mental health, which affects up to 20 per cent of women.

Alexandra shares her experiences on a blog by Olivia Siegl, the founder of The Every Mum Movement, which she created to educate and empower every mum to treat their maternal mental health as importantly as they do their physical health.

Alexandra supported the Movement’s Every Mum Selfie Challenge yesterday, World Mental Health Day.

She asked people to post a picture of themselves holding the sign #MeToo to show support for raising awareness of mental health and breaking down the stigma surrounding the issue.

Alexandra said: "I would like to say a massive thank you to Liv Siegl and the Every Mum Movement for coming up with the #MeToo campaign.

"It’s so important to make it OK to talk about mental health, and a social media campaign is perfect in the current social climate.

"Also, a selfie campaign means that people really have to take ownership of what they are supporting - it’s very easy to sign a document or like a post, but putting your face out there is a great commitment to the cause.

"And I want to say an even more massive thank you to everyone who got behind this campaign and supported Awesome Mums’ Brunch Club along the way.

"It was great to see so many different faces saying #MeToo! I loved that Roxy’s nursery got behind this campaign too, as we should be bringing up children in a world where we are encouraged to talk about emotions, and that it’s OK to not be OK at times.

Olivia said: “Eating Nutella straight from the jar, cat therapy and events involving the heady combination of puppies and Fizzy Haribo – were some of the hilarious highlights from interviewing the awesome Alexandra Clinton.

“It never ceases to amaze me the incredible women I am lucky enough to meet through The Every Mum Movement. - women who bravely open up and share some of the darkest and most painful times of their lives with the aim of helping others.

“Thank you Alexandra, for sharing so much of your story, your honesty and the fire in your belly to ‘do something’, and to create an organisation to help other women and to ensure other mums know they are not alone.”
