Our wheat bags have been handmade for you with love by the ladies at the Zonta clubs in Canterbury. Zonta empowers women through service and advocacy to improve the legal, political, economic, health and professional status of women and this is why Zonta donated their time and effort to provide these to raise funds for PADA.

PADA Book ‘Are you OK …Really?’
As part of World Maternal Mental Health Day 2018, we were thrilled to launch our PADA book “Are you OK …Really?” Thanks to Pelorus Trust a long-time dream became a reality! The book features 22 chapters, written by expert authors, and has been designed as a handy reference guide for the wide range of care providers who work with families over the perinatal period.
An essential guide for health care providers in New Zealand about a range of topics relating to perinatal distress and anxiety
More than 25% of women and 10% of men in New Zealand will develop a mental illness during pregnancy or within the first year after having a baby.
Perinatal mental illness is often unrecognised, undiagnosed and untreated and can have a devastating impact on the women and men affected as well as their families/whānau.
Identification of the illness, support and treatment are essential in assuring the mental health of women, children and their families during pregnancy and the postpartum period.
PADA has published this book as a resource for the wide range of care providers who work with families over the perinatal period, and is designed to be used as a handy reference guide.
$35 each + pp.
