This is a gentle, safe environment for you to be with other women who have similar experiences and feelings. It is a time for you to share what's going on for you. You can attend as often as you feel you need to.
It is a free service, although a gold coin donation is welcome. As the PND Trust is a not-for-profit group, your donations help with running costs. This group is suitable for those with 'babes-in arms' (i.e. not running about yet!). Mums enjoy a relaxed, safe and flexible atmosphere in a professionally facilitated peer support group of fellow women at various stages. We do not label or diagnose; we listen. You do not need a referral from your doctor or any other practitioner or specialist.
The trust offers free support services for women with postnatal depression, including support groups, telephone support, and drop–in support.
You will need to phone the PND Trust Office on 836 6967 to book your place or if you require more information either phone or go to their website (www.postnataldistress.org.nz).
Emma is a childbirth educator and group facilitator, who currently facilitates the support groups for the Postnatal Distress Support Network. Emma has three children. She has experienced PND after the birth of her second child, which she suspects was there after the birth of her first child and went unrecognised. Her passion is in listening to women, hearing their stories and supporting them on their journey, whatever stage they are at.
