    What is Perinatal Anxiety and Depression?

The Gidget Foundation is a not for profit organisation supporting the emotional wellbeing of new parents and their families, while providing education for health professionals and the community.

Previously known as Postnatal Depression, anxiety and depression during pregnancy and early parenthood (the perinatal period) affects almost 100,000 Australians each year.

Support New Parents

Parenthood can be a wonderful and special time but it also has its challenges. Finding the right help can help parents recover more quickly from perinatal anxiety and depression.

Information for Health Professionals

Resources for Health Professionals include presentations, brochures, information on screening and assessment as well as a guide to Medicare help available.

Information for Employers

Parents affected by perinatal anxiety and depression are workers too. We can tailor unique workplace programs, including wellbeing and employee engagement.

Gidget House

Located in North Sydney, Gidget House provides a free professional psychological support service for pregnant women and new parents suffering anxiety and depression.
