Background of Nasera Cader-Mokoa:
Nasera is the Senior Clinical Psychologist at Lentegeur Psychiatric Hospital. She has been at the hospital since 2007, where she started her clinical internship in Clinical Psychology and continues to work there. She went on to do her community service in Intellectual disability and worked in a contract post there for 2 years before being permanently appointed in the Female Admissions Unit at LGH.
This is where her interest in maternal infant health started. This has resulted in her collaboration with the child unit in forming a maternal infant mental health clinic and focus. It was initially started with women who were admitted with a postpartum psychosis and often the work would involve trying to develop a relationship with the baby while the mom was still an in-patient with the view of increasing attachment between mom and baby.
In collaboration Yale University, the Mothering from the Inside out project was developed. This project included various hospitals- LGH (mothers with a mental illness, mothers of children with intellectual disability); RCWMCH- (mothers of children discharged from the burns); Stikland Hospital (mothers with a mental illness, mother with a substance use disorder); and TBH (at risk mothers of premature infants in the kangaroo care).

Nasera is now the psychologist in the Outpatient department. However, she still provides services to the Maternal Infant Clinic based at the Child and Adolescent Unit at LGH and still undertakes maternal infant work when required

She has an 8 year old daughter, who sparked her total interest in maternal infant work.
