Women's and Children's Hospital, Adelaide

Helen Mayo House - Telephone Counselling

Ward staff are available 24 hours a day to counsel women in distress after the birth of their baby. The extent of the support provided will vary according to the needs of the situation. Advice may be given about immediate measures for help or longer term sources of help.

Occasionally an assessment can be undertaken by the staff in the unit, but in most cases, this will only occur after referral from doctors who are already involved, including a general practitioner.
