As one of the most recent organisations that I have had the blessing to be a part of, I cannot more highly recommend The Belmont Private Hospital Centre for Perinatal Disorders.
I unexpectedly found myself in the position of suffering severe postnatal depression and was admitted as a patient with my daughter when she was only 4 weeks old. This centre is the only one of its kind in the whole of Queensland and I am ever grateful for the support and services that it has provided me.
Perinatal Depression and Anxiety Awareness Week is held each year between the 15th and 21st of November. I hope that together we can continue to raise awareness in the community about perinatal health. It is still an area that is crucially under serviced and one that affects at least 1 in 5 mothers or fathers every year.
If you know someone who is suffering or who would benefit from perinatal support, please contact Belmont Private Hospital on (07) 3398 0111 and ask about their many programs or inpatient services.
