Empower yourself at Putting the You Back workshop

GLADSTONE region women are being offered video conference talks in an effort to raise their awareness of health risk factors and the range of services available to them.

Women's Health Centre Gladstone will run a video conference on Tuesday called Putting the You Back in Mum, which will focus on mothers' emotional wellbeing to help foster better mother-infant attachment and brain development in their babies.

Among the topics covered in next week's conference are developing a "bad day plan" and sharing ways to cope, as well as making participants aware of services Women's Health offers.

Gladstone Women's Health Centre youth and family co-ordinator Crystal Harvey said it was a great opportunity to network with other mums.

"A lot of mums come to Gladstone with their partners who are working and they can feel very isolated from not having friends and family around.

"I think as a new mum it's great to get as much information as you can to empower you as a mother because it can be very daunting at times."

The video conference will be held from 11.30am- 12.30pm at the Gladstone Women's Health Centre at 9 Derby St.

The cost of the workshop is $5, which includes an afternoon tea and child minding.

Bookings are essential. Phone the centre on 4979 1456 to ensure your spot.
