I had a lovely email from Mindy at https://www.facebook.com/HampshireBreastfeedingCounselling and she has asked me to share this post with you.
It’s likely that the meeting will take place in Winchester or Basingstoke as it’s funded by Hampshire Hospitals.
Please email Mindy directly at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to be considered.
Mum with PND…
Did you suffer from postnatal depression?
Hampshire Hospitals (HHFT) are looking for a woman who has experienced PND relatively recently (in the last 18 months) to speak at an event they are organising.
If you are considering doing this please message Mindy Noble via the Hampshire Breastfeeding FB page above.
Message from Hannah Doe, Consultant Midwife trainee (Year 2),
Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
HHFT is organising a perinatal mental health conference for approximately 100 professionals on Friday 13th February 2015. We would very much like to include women and their partners experiences in this day.
We understand that this may be a sensitive subject for women and do not wish to cause any undue stress or upset by asking women to share their experiences.
Ideally we would like the person to speak for up to 15 minutes (it could be less, or by video) about their experience; perhaps how they felt, what support they had, aspects of good care and suggestions of what could have made their experience better. It does not have to be restricted to this, it is an open opportunity for women to talk about their experience.
Within that time, if possible, we would like to include the partners experience.
If you could forward the details of any women who may wish to take part then I can contact them to discuss this further. We are able to reimburse any reasonable travel expenses.
I look forward to hearing from you.
