The Perinatal Service provides outpatient care to women who have moderate to severe mental health difficulties in pregnancy or within the first year after childbirth. These may be pre-existing illnesses or have their onset in the perinatal period.
The multi-disciplinary team offers assessment and a plan of care that usually includes working alongside other agencies such as community mental health teams, maternity services, primary care and children’s social care.
