Description

This online video features two Western Australian Indigenous women who have experienced depression during the perinatal period (the later stages of pregnancy and shortly after birth). The women speak openly about their depression and offer advice to other mothers who might be struggling. The video also provides information on symptoms and risk factors for perinatal depression, as well as treatment options and getting help. This video is available online or as a DVD (free to order within WA).
