On Friday 5th January DIEP’s Founding Director Mila Oshin will be presenting a lecture performance at the 2018 Birth Trauma Conference at the BARTS Health NHS Trust’s Education Academy in London. Other speakers on the day include Dr Andrew Mayers, Dr Susan Ayers, Dr Sally Pezarro, Milli Hill and many more.
Mila will be speaking about DIEP’s mission to investigate, highlight and address the cultural factors that play part in the UK’s current perinatal mental health crisis, many of which are overlooked and unaddressed by policy makers. She will also be reading from her work Passage, a poetry collection and music album which she wrote with her partner in response to their two extremely opposed birth and early parenthood experiences, which eventually led to the founding of the Digital Institute for Early Parenthood (DIEP).
