My Campaign

Psychology Of Natal well-being Awareness

What I'm Leading

PONA Campaign seeks to create awareness about the need for perinatal well-being and the reality of perinatal mental disorders. Pona is a Shona word that is interchangeably used to mean either giving birth or surviving a life -threatening ordeal.While perinatal mental disorders do not segregate, some of the more common triggers include * economic instability- uncertainty about providing for child/ self * health anxiety- eg. many only become aware of their HIV status during pregnancy * unplanned/ unwanted pregnancy - option of termination is illegal in Zimbabwe * teenage pregnancy- psychological unpreparedness for parenthood * prior mental illness - depression, schizophrenia amongst others.
