Peach Tree Perinatal Wellness
Peach Tree supports parents to increase their parenting confidence and capability through providing mental health support, parenting and mental health education, and social inclusion activities for individuals and couples during the pregnancy and early parenthood period.
In Queensland, suicide is the leading cause of indirect maternal death, with one in five new mothers and one in ten new fathers experiencing postnatal depression. Peach Tree provides a safe space for parents and families by building a village of support by promoting a positive culture around emotional wellbeing and parenthood.
Funds raised: $41,770
The early stages of parenthood can be incredibly challenging. In fact, one in seven mums and one in ten dads experience depression in the first two years after having a baby. At TFN Live Brisbane, Peach Tree Perinatal Wellness pitched for funding to run workshops for expecting couples. The aim? To help prepare them for the emotional realities that go hand in hand with the transition to parenthood – and how the journey ahead may impact their relationship.
