Who We Are
Perinatal Support Nelson
Perinatal Support Nelson was formed in 1989 by a group of women who had experienced Postnatal Depression and recognised the lack of support available for them in the region. Since then Perinatal Support Nelson has grown to become a service that provides information and offers support through a team of trained and experienced support workers and counselors.
Our team currently consists of a board of five volunteers, two paid part time office staff members, ten qualified and in training counsellors and a small team of volunteer support workers.
What We Do
Counselling, support and information
Perinatal Support Nelson provides counselling, support and information to all mothers and their partners that are experiencing mild to moderate PND/A. We do this through in home visits with a volunteer counsellor or our counselling space. Offering personal counselling and the opportunity to join therapy groups in the region. We can provide referrals to other agencies, giving support and information on PND/A.
