Read about how we've adapted care for our patients in response to COVID-19.

Our Perinatal Psychiatry services are focused on helping women with pre-existing psychiatric disorders, and/or women who take psychotropic medications plan a healthy pregnancy. Patients are consulted on ways to minimize the risks of taking psychiatric medications while trying to conceive, during pregnancy, and breastfeeding. We provide assessments for depression and/or anxiety both before and during pregnancy to help the treatment team form a plan.

Eligibility

  • Women with psychiatric disorders (Depression, Bipolar disorder, Anxiety disorders, Schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorders, OCD, etc) and/or women on psychotropic meds who are currently pregnant, or trying to conceive within the next three months.
  • Women who are postpartum within nine months of delivery and breastfeeding.
  • Pregnant patients should preferably be under the care of Ob/Gyn during the pregnancy and a team approach will be established for the care of the patient and baby to ensure the best outcomes for all involved
