Pregnancy and parenting service hub coming to Whakatāne Hospital


Whakatane Hospital is set to be
the location for a new pregnancy and parenting service hub, one of two new hubs
to be launched. Health Minister Dr David Clark made
the announcement at the hospital, where he expects up to 100
families would benefit from the new service. He said the new pregnancy
and parenting service would aim to address issues
such as mental health, drug and alcohol addictions
and family violence. We need to embrace our ancestral
practices for our benefit today. He said announcements
will soon be made around suicide prevention schemes, with a special focus
on Maori and men.
