Event Details

Keeping Motherhood Real

This Conference promises to provide Health Care Professionals with renewed insights, information, tools and evidence based approaches to identify, treat and support those experiencing perinatal emotional health issues.
It also separates what is real and what is not, based on never before released research from over 2,000 Australian Mothers.

The Benefits and Why You Can’t Miss Out!

Based on the first time release of research from over 2,000 Australian Mothers, this conference is innovative and unique in content.

"A high percentage of our perinatal parents are unknowingly at risk for serious decline in mental health, with consequent adverse affects on many areas of their lives, especially their close relationships. We know that the risks for these maladies can be minimised through robust preparation over the antenatal stage, combined with appropriate professional care over the whole perinatal period. Practitioners working in this field need evidence based skills to take advantage of the priceless opportunities offered by this developmental stage for early intervention, prevention and health promotion for our community."
Professor Bryanne Barnett AM
School of Psychiatry, UNSW Medicine

Informed by the needs of women and families struggling to get it right and keep it real you will be enlightened and informed by the latest research, best practice evidence and tools to support you knowledge and your practice. Attendance is a must!
