WHO WE ARE
Peach Tree is a community based mental health organisation, which provides services for parents, partners, and families who are impacted by emotional and mental health challenges in the period of pregnancy and early parenthood.
Utilizing trauma-informed, recovery-oriented, and person-led approaches, we aim to support health and well-being in the perinatal and early parenthood period.
We use a Lived Experience Workforce which means that everyone who delivers our services and programs has personal insight and experience into the challenges of becoming a parent and raising small children. Our Peer Support Workers, Peer Educators and Peer Coaches are all dedicated to providing compassionate, meaningful, and inclusive support.
WHAT IS PERINATAL HEALTH & WELLBEING?
Perinatal mental health and wellbeing focus on the emotional and psychological aspects of a mother’s experience before, during, and shortly after childbirth. This crucial period can bring about a range of emotions, from joy and excitement to stress and anxiety. Effective perinatal mental health care aims to provide comprehensive support to mothers, helping them navigate challenges like mood swings, stress, or even more serious conditions like postpartum depression. A strong mental and emotional foundation is not only essential for the mother’s wellbeing but also has a lasting impact on the child’s development.
