AGM at 09:00 – Conference will follow, which will explore the challenges that our clients/patients may face when struggling with the impact of chronic conditions and how we may work to help them to achieve the best possible outcome in their sexual and intimate relationships.
The day will focus upon the identity and role of the contemporary father in our society, his experience of pregnancy and birth, the rates, causes and measurement of paternal PND (PPND) and the place for intervention in reducing the risk and effects of PPND on the individual and his family. Possible causes of PND and its impact on the mother, the couple and the family unit will also be explored.
