Dayspring Trust

Dayspring is a community based charitable trust focused on maternal and Infant wellbeing.

Since early beginnings in 1980, Dayspring have been working with vulnerable families and have a long history of positive involvement with mothers and their babies who are living with postnatal depression or mental illness.

We have first-hand experience of the impact their illness has on the mother/baby bonding processes, and the associated risks of attachment disorder. Dayspring provides programmes and services that are designed to positively influence the pathways for women and their whānau.
