Fact: 1 in 7 new mums and 1 in 20 new dads are diagnosed with postnatal depression each year and many more are not identified because the signs are not always black and white. PANDA is calling on all Australians to speak out to support parents who are suffering in silence. Postnatal Depression – It’s Not All Black & White.

Help PANDA during Postnatal Depression Awareness Week, 18 – 24 November 2012, by wearing a limited edition Black & White PANDA Necklace ($25) or Bracelet ($15 per 2), designed exclusively for PANDA by MummaBubba Jewellery. You can buy these gorgeous designs on the PANDA website and at PANDA fundraising events, grab one for yourself or as a gift for special mama and know you are supporting a great cause!

PANDA has been raising awareness of postnatal and antenatal depression for over 28 years and has helped tens of thousands of Australians get much-needed information, support and treatment to aid their recovery.

  2. I have two girls and would love to give one each to them and I would have the necklace.

  3. having felt the effects of PND its a tough road to travel. I would love to win a set as a reminder to me of the journey taken for our babies.

  4. Having seen just how debilitating PND can be watching friends struggle with it, I think Panda is an amazing organisation letting women know that no matter how isolated they may feel, they do not have to walk this path alone. Anything that helps get such a message out – like wearing some striking jewelry – needs our support!

  5. I would love these to help bring awareness to the PANDA organisation to those around me. I feel very passionate about letting people know of available resources for pregnant & new mothers. Cheers

  6. My husband now admits he feels I may have suffered from Post Natal Depression but didn’t want to say anything for fear I may have ‘taken it the wrong way’.

    With a sister who has just given birth, and another about to, this is a cause close to my heart.

  7. I would to like to win a PANDA Prize Pack for my cousin. She is 45 & due in March with her first baby after many years of trying. How exciting! PANDA is such an important organisation.

  8. I would give these to my beautiful daughter. When she blessed us with our only grand-child I saw her go through this living hell. I, being afflicted with “normal” depression I had some knowledge of her suffering but hers impacted on what should have been one of the most beautiful times of her life.

  9. Panda bracelets Stand out, they are so beautiful and very recognisable, I would love one for my daughter and my granddaughter, they would just cherish them as they deserve

  10. Definitely give these to my mum – Thanks Hip Little One for such a great giveaway and promoting such a wonderful cause!

  11. As a suffer of PND myself, for my second time I Know how important it is to have the help and supprt you need to get thro. Not everyone understands PND and depression in general and I think it is very important to help bring more awarness to everyone not just the people who may be suffering. Thankyou panda for all the wonderful things you do for our PND sufferers =) I would like this pack as a reminder to myself of the road that has been travelled and that I got through (and will get thro again) . Thankyou x

  12. I would love to win this prize. My sis-in-law wants to have a baby. I think this panda prize pack will be the best gift for her to show her my love and support.

  13. They remind me of Wilma Flintstone’s necklace, and I have always wanted one since I was a kid!

  14. my sister in law has PND and is in denial i would love to give this to her and her baby girl.

  15. As a mother who has previously suffered PND and survived it to be an even better mother and person. I would like to win this to show my support to those who are going through it now, and by wearning these bracelets/necklaces, other parents would be able to see that they are not alone, we are all very much alike and I am willing to share my PND stories with you to help you though this cycle.

  16. The necklace is pretty and has a very special meaning to it and that would make me feel very proud to have one around my neck.

  17. I love the awareness this organisation brings to young and old as depression is very real and wearing the jewellery will remind me I survived.

  18. I’d love to win a Panda prize pack as this would be lovely to share with my daughter seeing as i suffered PND after having her.

  19. to update my hiddiously 80’s jewelery collection to something a little more ‘now-ish’. My daughter says I dress like a librarian (sorry to all the librarian) :0)

  20. I am on the lookout for jewellery that my little one won’t break and which will keep him from pinching me black and blue while he is feeding.

  21. Dadelion Angel Tulle Skirt from Looking Art You Kid

  22. Apple rattle from the Wooden Toy Shop

  23. Oops, Please disregard my last two comments.

  24. I love the idea that someone is always there to help in great times of need, it is essential that we as a society recognise this ‘disease’ and treat it carefully to ensure all people suffering can benefit and pride themselves that they reached out, there is never any shame asking for help.

  25. Depression is someting we all hide from, something that is hidded behind closed doors. I feel that these necklaces and braceltes will become a talking point- and that is what we need to do with depression. Talk about it !

  26. its adorable mumma bubba jewellery is always cute an soo cute

  27. Because I very much for making people aware of of the condition as most the women in my family including myself have suffered from this. Its sad and very unfortunate as it can break families apart.

  28. The perfect gift for a friend at work who has just had a bub (and at work was always super fashionable and wore great jewellery)

  29. I would love to win a prize pack as I know from experience it’s not all black and white. i had PND with my first baby and I covered it very well, everyone was telling me what a great job I was doing as a mum but inside I felt the worst I ever had. I know now that it’s ok not to be perfect but I had this image in my mind and being a teenage mum I felt hugely pressured to do everything right.

  30. I would like to win these and I would give these to my daughter in law who is about to deliver twins, ensuring she is aware of PANDA.

  31. I suffered with PND after the birth of my first child. During my experience I found it difficult to discuss what I was feeling, and realised there is a taboo associated with the topic of PND. This prize would help remind me to have faith in myself, as well as making it easy to bring up what seems to be a touchy subject with others, as when they compliment my pretty jewellery I can explain its significance and share my story. I am currently pregnant with my second child and feel much stronger this time around 🙂

  32. I would like to wear these to remind me of the hard road after child birth and be thankful to have a happy and healthy buba

  33. I’d like to win this prize pack to spread awareness to others about PND.

  34. My niece is growing up 🙁 but Im sure she would love these

  35. PND is a very real thing and the Panda organisation is doing a wonderful job at supporting those in need. My brother and his wife are expecting their first child, and I remember how overwhelming the first time is, you overthink EVERYTHING. Your life is about to change permanently , and I think a kind gesture goes a long way in this time. I’d love to win a set for Cath, my sister in law.

  36. As a mum with a young son I have a number of friends at Mothers group who have been diagnosed with PND. Interestingly it is only now, ( when our children are 18 months) that many of the Mums have felt comfortable talking about this. I would love to win a prize pack to show my support and to let them know that the subject isn’t taboo.

  37. I would love this prize because i can show i am supporting such an important cause and tell people about it.

  38. I would so love to give this pack to my pregnant friend and talk to her about PND. This would be fantastic!

  39. These are just beautiful, and would look really nice at a wedding that I will be going to in January with my baby boy (4months now). First time after giving birth where Ill be able to make myself look stunning! 🙂

  40. I think they are beautiful and would open up the discussion about pnd. its so important to talk about with other mums so they don’t feel alone and isolated.
