Kirstin Bouse – The Conscious Mother

Kirstin Bouse is a Clinical and Forensic Psychologist with 20-years’ experience in peri-natal mental health, parenting, anxiety and depression, trauma, family breakdown and relationships. Kirstin has also developed The Conscious Mother’s Program for women at ALL stages of their motherhood journey whether they are experiencing difficulties or not. The primary aim of program is to help women prepare for, and successfully navigate, the psychological elements of motherhood.

I am so pleased to be an Ambassador for The Big Pram Walk. As a Clinical Psychologist who works with women from pregnancy, to new motherhood and well beyond I see women from all walks of life having such varied experiences of motherhood. Most hit a few bumps while others are brought to their knees given their experience of depression, anxiety or psychosis during the perinatal period. Education, early intervention and ongoing support for all new parents is key. The Big Pram walk offers the city of Perth the opportunity to be both leaders and learners in the area of perinatal mental health and ultimately helps families thrive.

Hear Kirstin Bouse’s inspirational insight into how a healthy, happy and fulfilled motherhood can be achieved on the Main Stage at 10.10am.

The Conscious Mother’ Book written by Kirstin Bouse will be available to purchase at the Baby Steps Health Centre marquee at The Big Pram Walk Perth. Alternatively, if you can’t wait… you can purchase it from Baby Steps Health Centre – 21/127 Herdsman Parade, Wembley, 6014.

Megan Cherry – Community Ambassador

I am a mum of a 5-year old daughter and an almost 2-year old son. Although I have often experienced anxiety, it wasn’t until after the birth of my daughter I experienced debilitating postnatal anxiety, which was heightened when one of my best friends took her own life shortly after I became a mother. 

Despite having a psychology background and knowing full well I was in the depths of postnatal anxiety. I had completely isolated myself so no one could see the strain I was under and became very good at disguising this to appear like I was coping when I was around people.

The pain I felt for losing my friend combined with the debilitating feelings of anxiety saw me seek help through a counsellor and join a support group where I was surrounded by strong mothers in a peer supported space where we were free to be honest and open about our mental health and parenting struggles.

Fully aware of my postnatal anxiety, I fought the very familiar signs of anxiety when my son was born by turning to running and fitness, which has helped my anxiety and general health immensely.

I am honoured to be invited to share my story at The Big Pram Walk and show that there is hope for people challenged by perinatal anxiety and depression.

Hear Megan’s story on the Main Stage at 8:28am before the walk commences.
