I’ve just been contacted by Rosie Smith, who is the chair of the Perinatal Mental Health NZ Trust (www.pmhnz.org.nz). They’re thinking about organising a conference in New Zealand in 2016 (probably in May), and asked me to ask our members to get in touch with her if anyone is planning a visit to Australasia in 2016, and if any of you would be interested in attending. It would cover all perinatal mental health issues, including PTSD and loss. If you would like to register your interest or learn more about the event, please contact Rosie at email@example.com.

Interested in this conference
I am a consultant perinatal psychiatrist working in East London and I am increasingly interested in PTSD and Birth trauma.
I am going to be organising a free day long meeting on PTSD and Birth Trauma in December 2015 with speakers from as far afield as Stanford University.
Please do get in touch if you would like to attend or have any research you might like to present.
I’m really interested in attending event in December if you could send me some further details.
Personally, I experienced Birth Trauma and PTSD at birth of my daughter 3 years ago. At the time I was a student Midwife with only 3 weeks before qualification which I’ve never been able to complete due to trauma. I now speak at RCM and University conferences/study days on Perinatal Mental Health from a mother & midwife perspective.
Sadly I’ve only just found out about your conference. I would be very interested in any further conferences or workshops you might run. I am a counselling psychologist who specialises in motherhood issues and more recently have started working with mothers suffering from PN PTSD. My email address is Claire.firstname.lastname@example.org
I am a midwife and just beginning a PhD in PTSD associated with childbirth. I would be very interested in any future study days or conference days you are running or are aware of.
Hi Rebecca, I’m a perinatal mental health midwife working on the Wirral with an interest in childbirth trauma and PTSD. I’m also a psychosexual therapist and relationship counselor for Relate. I’ve recently completed an MSc in psychological trauma and for my dissertation carried out research looking at health professionals knowledge of, attitudes toward and beliefs about the subject. Since March 2015 I’ve started a trauma service as part of my role, I’m presenting the research and details of our trauma service at an event in Manchester in September 2015. I’d be interested in attending your event, please let me know if you’d like a copy of the research I carried out? Regards, Emma.
