Client testimonials

"I can't thank Perinatal Wellbeing Centre staff enough for the help they've given me. Getting PND was the first time I'd experienced any mental health issue in my life and it hit me like a brick! It was the hardest time in my life, and for a long time Perinatal Wellbeing Centre was the only support I felt I had. It's a fantastic organisation."

"The phone services was amazing and I can't speak highly enough of the fantastic women I spoke with. They helped to normalise what I was feeling and helped me to cope with some tough moments and get through the first year of parenting. I'm so appreciative of this fantastic, invaluable service. Thank you."

"I was really struggling with my mental health following the birth of my daughter. I ended up reaching out to Perinatal Wellbeing Centre and it was the best decision I could have made."

"Perinatal Wellbeing Centre supported me through many turbulent years. Staff, programs and volunteers all making a huge contribution towards the wellbeing of others. I benefited greatly and am forever thankful for the support I received."

"This was a wonderful thing for me, having a caring person ring me each week to see how my week was and offer practical and useful suggestions for how things could be different. I looked forward to Thursdays. At the start of my illness I couldn't wait for the call on Thursdays. Gradually, the Thursday call would take me by surprise - is it Thursday already? Then I was moved to fortnightly calls, and now monthly calls which shows I must be getting better. Thank you."

"Thank you so much for all the support you have given me over the last year. It is such a great service and has made the world of difference to my mental health, helping me to feel supported, normalising a lot of what I was feeling and most importantly getting me to understand that it is OK not to be perfect in everything. I really appreciate it."

"Thank you so much for all of your assistance, Perinatal Wellbeing Centre has been a huge source of support for me. I don't know where I'd be without you guys and the friendships I've made through the centre."

"I just wanted to say a big thank you for all your help over the last year or so. The programs run by Perinatal Wellbeing Centre are wonderful and it was really helpful to be able to meet with a group of people who understood what I was going through. The groups were very open and supportive."

"You saved my life once upon a time, and I hope to become well enough to assist as a volunteer some day soon."

"Just a quick note to say what a wonderful and helpful service you have offered me over the last few years through telephone support, play group and the yoga/mindfulness sessions. I haven’t needed you all the time, but the times when I have you have helped fill a gap of loneliness or lowness and helped me through. What I have received has also been a great gift for our family as a whole."

"Thank you so much for your support for the last two years, you offer a wonderful service and I wouldn't have managed without you. I am very lucky to live somewhere which has so much mental health support available."
