Are you or someone you know experiencing a mental health issue? Did it begin before or after the birth of a child? According to Postpartum Support International, approximately 10% of women experience depression during pregnancy, another 15% experience postpartum (postnatal) depression, and an estimated 10% of fathers experience postpartum depression.
Trying to manage raising a family, take care of your home and maybe even working in or on a business can be a huge challenge, then add depression to the mix and it can feel insurmountable. So what can mums and das do?
Today, I interview Dr Christina Hibbert, clinical psychologist, speaker, founder of the AZ Postpartum Wellness Coalition, an author of a new book “8 Keys to Mental Health Through Exercise.” She also hosts her own webtalk radio show called Motherhood. Make sure you take a look she has fabulous episodes on all things related to being a mum.

The way in which you parent can have an impact on your child’s mental health. Research shows that higher parental care and lower parental control are more likely to lead to greater mental wellbeing for children. Do you find the controlling approach of discipline, punishment and rewards model you’re using with the kids isn’t working? Would you like a research and heart-based approach that is founded on empathy and education and supports you to develop a close bond with your child?
