If you or someone close to you is suffering from Post Natal Depression and you would like some advice or more information, join us on Friday between 1pm and 1.30pm to chat to clinical psychologist Dr Natalie Flynn and registered psychologist Alexandra Winlove.
PND is a type of clinical depression that affects both men and women.
Symptoms include sadness, fatigue, changes in sleeping and eating patterns, reduced libido, crying episodes, anxiety, and irritability.
The actual causes of PND are not well understood, but if left untreated can get increasingly severe.
Both have experience helping women with Post Natal Depression through their Auckland based Getting Ahead of Postnatal Depression (GAPD) programme.
This live chat is the first of many that Essential Mums would like to run to help our readers connect with the experts.
If you have any questions you would like to ask about PND you can email them to firstname.lastname@example.org now, or join in on the day to ask Dr Flynn directly.
Tell us: If you have any ideas on live chats you would like us to do in the future, let us know and we will see if we can find the expert to help.
