We are excited to bring you our 2021 PADA Seminar Series in Tauranga Moana on 15 Paenga-whāwhā April 2021, at The French Country House, 163 Esdaile Rd, Pahoia, Tauranga Moana.

We have an exciting list of presenters lined up to bring tools, understanding and knowledge into your work with helping families in the perinatal period.

These seminars provide professional development for those supporting families affected by mental illness related to pregnancy, childbirth and early parenthood. When participants leave each seminar, they will better understand how these topics impact families, and strengthen their knowledge and skills to help improve perinatal outcomes.

These seminars are of particular value to: Midwives, Social Workers, Psychologists, Nurses, GPs, Family Community Support Workers, Psychotherapists, Childbirth Educators, HR Professionals, Counsellors, Mental Health Clinicians, Early Childhood Educators, to list a few.
