Stop Child Sex Abuse Workshop
Child sexual abuse is likely the most prevalent health problem children face, with the most serious array of consequences. In fact, 1 in 10 children will experience sexual abuse before their 18th birthday. This means it is highly likely that someone you know and care for has experienced, or is currently experiencing, child sexual abuse. It's going to happen whether you are prepared to deal with it or not - unless you stop it from happening. And the good news is, it can be stopped. Come learn how to stop and prevent child abuse in this informative workshop sponsored by Media Concern Initiative.
What to expect in the weeks following birth
You've given birth – now what? There's an amazing journey ahead, but many new parents report feeling completely unprepared for what happens when they return home with a new baby; having focused so hard on birth, they're not prepped for the reality of the first weeks with a brand new (and pretty demanding) human being. Our panel will share their wisdom on how to cope with the few weeks of parenthood: sleep (or lack of it), feeding, when to have visitors, family and relationship expectations, PND, your body after birth, and more.
Factors to consider when choosing a fertility clinic
Getting the right fit is just as essential as comparing success rates when deciding on a fertility clinic. Come and find out what you need to know about going to fertility clinics, what it involves, the prices and what you should expect.
