Perinatal Mental Health & Parenting Support

Perinatal Mental Health & Parenting Support

How can we help?

Mums, have you been feeling down lately? Are you anxious or stressed out? You may not realize it, but these feelings can impact your unborn baby. It’s important to seek help for your mental health during pregnancy.

Have you been feeling down since giving birth? You’re not alone. Many women experience postnatal mental health issues, such as depression and anxiety. However, these conditions are often misunderstood and go untreated.

Caring for a new baby can be both challenging and rewarding, and it is important to get as much support as possible. If you are a father or a friend/family member of new parents, here are some resources for you.

As a parent, you face many challenges. It can be tough to keep your spirits up when things are difficult, but it is important to remember that you are not alone. It’s important to stay positive and motivated, even when things get tough.

As a healthcare professional, you may be called upon to help parents, before and after the birth of their baby. Often during this time, they may find it difficult to ask for help. To support you and your clients we have a library of resources and contacts, to help parents adjust to their new role. 

Are you a new parent looking for online courses on parenting? Look no further! Our Hidden World of You platform has great self paced options that can help you get the information and support you need to be the best parent possible.

Upcoming Event

PNDA Symposium

Coming up on 16th & 17th June, WHWS with our sister organisation, The Centre for Perinatal Mental Health and Pregnancy Support are proud to present their Perinatal Mental Health Symposium.

Following the success of the 2021 event, we have extended the symposium to cover 2 days.

Day 1 is for the general public. Expectant mothers, fathers, or those who just want to know more about how you can offer support in pregnancy and the newborn/toddler years. Join us for a day of amazing, professional speakers and learn practical exercises for you to put use to during this time to nurture your mental health as well as make the transition easier.

Day 2 is for professionals working in the Perinatal space. This includes social workers, midwives, OT’s, counsellors just to name a few. We will be joined by industry experts who share their wealth of knowledge around supporting the health and wellbeing of perinatal mothers, their partners and babies. CPD point eligible.

Emma and Belinda have such vast knowledge and experience and they share it with such love and care. The workshops have empowered me to feel like my wife and I can enter the world of parenthood as a united force, with the skills to tackle problems that might come our way. I would recommend this course to all prospective Mums and Dad's. You won't regret it!

This class was the best thing we did during our pregnancy! It was a perfect blend of the practical skills we needed and encouraging my Husband and I to have the important conversations we needed to understand each other’s perspectives and get on the same page. While our hospital class provided us with info on labour, birth and breastfeeding we found “communication and handling conflict” was just one dot point on a slide, compared to being the underlying focus of each session in the Preparing for Parenting class. The class encouraged us to think about the support we’ll need (and who we’ll need it from!), what boundaries we might need to set with friends and family and important mindfulness strategies to cope during stressful times. The blend of experiences from the facilitators and other participants gave us a broad range of perspectives that we could adopt to suit us as parents.
