Hi I’m Mel.
I’m a mother of 3 and midwife. My experience of PND occurred after the birth of my second child, following a series of traumatic events. I have always suffered from depression and anxiety, including PTSD and I feel the most valuable tool in my toolbox is community, friendship and understanding supportive relationships.
Peach Tree has opened up a safe space to share experiences and heal from the past. Removing the mask through shared experiences is the biggest aspect of facilitating groups that bonds us as women and mothers that I adore and am so grateful for.
*Mel is a Peach Tree Peer Worker and facilitates our Bulimba Peachy Group.
