Royal Women's Hospital, Randwick
After a long sleep I packed my case and left Shelley's. We went to her clinic at Doubletree Bay and she gave me an allergy test.
Seems I am short on folic acid and need to eat eggs, but also I have a problem with baker's yeast. So maybe I am okay with wheat but not the yeast? And I have been living wheat free for almost 5 years now! Won't try anything until I am home though.
Then we went to the Royal Women's Hospital at Randwick where I gave a talk to a room of various health professionals for an hour.
My first International presentation outside the UK! It seemed to be well received.
From there it was onto the airport where I flew to Melbourne and was met by Belinda from Panda.
PANDA is a Victorian, not-for-profit, self-help organization that was formed in 1985 to provide confidential information, support and referral to anyone affected by post and antenatal mood disorders, including partners and extended family members. PANDA also produces and distributes accurate information about post and antenatal mood disorders to health professionals and the wider community.
Their website is a goldmine of information - I highly recommend that you look at it.
Another bed - this time at Bayview on the Park hotel in Melbourne, where I had a lovely big room.
