Perinatal Anxiety & Depression Aotearoa invite you to a High Tea and Depressed Cake Auction with Emily Writes and Maria Foy sharing their experiences with Perinatal Depression and hosted by Jude Dobson

Perinatal depression affects families, workplaces and the whole community. This event reinforces the vital messages that "it's okay to talk about it" and early intervention leads to a faster recovery.

Enjoy a delightful fundraising afternoon with friends, treat yourself to a high tea with champagne or non-alcoholic beverage on arrival with raffles and auctions on the day.

Depressed Cakes donated by top Wellington cake decorators will be auctioned to raise awareness for perinatal distress. The cakes will have an element of gray to signify the gray cloud that can descend over a beautiful world when someone is struggling with mental health issues.

Emily Writes is a mother of two, a best-selling author, and editor of The Spinoff Parents. Her first book Rants in the Dark - From One Tired Mama To Another shot to the top of the New Zealand charts when it was published in March 2017.

Emily is an advocate for mothers and children and a volunteer and ambassador for charities supporting parents and families. She lives in Wellington with her husband and her two-year-old and four-year-old. She has a social media presence reaching hundreds of thousands of mothers and her blogs on her website and her Facebook posts have been shared around the world.

She runs a charity that provides free ballet classes for children from low income families and children with disabilities Ballet is for Everyone and is an unofficial ambassador for Mother's Network Wellington, The NeoNatal Trust New Zealand, Perinatal Anxiety and Depression Awareness New Zealand, Double the Refugee Quota New Zealand and the Wellington Children's Hospital.

Maria is a stay-at-home Mum to two kids aged 5 and 3. She runs one of New Zealand’s top blogs called Happy Mum Happy Child. HMHC is a place to find activities for kids, recipes, daily shenanigans and to talk about the ups and downs of parenting - including post natal depression, which she has.

Jude Dobson started her long television career competing in the Miss Universe New Zealand pageant and went on to host Sale of the Century. Hosting her own self-titled show for five years in the late 90s, Jude went on to set up production companies Homegrown Television and Raising Children Media, to accommodate her passion for making accessible, useful video content for parents.
