*PNDA stands for Perinatal Depression and Anxiety – but this year we’re expanding our definition to include a more diverse experience of mental health.

Approximately 1 in 5 new and expectant birth parents and up to 1 in 10 non-birth parents experience PNDA.


PNDA doesn't just affect new mums, it can happen to all sorts of parents: dads and non-birth parents, trans and gender diverse birth parents, and gestational surrogates. Foster carers, adoptive parents, and extended family can also experience perinatal mental health issues surrounding the arrival of a new baby or child.

Across Australia, 100,000 families are affected by PNDA every year.
