Perinatal Mental Health

We care for the emotional and psychological wellbeing of parents and their baby during pregnancy (ante natally) and early parenthood up to 1 year post natally.

We understand for some parents, adjusting to pregnancy and parenthood can be a difficult and distressing time. You may experience a range of emotions that may lead to perinatal depression, anxiety or other related conditions if left undetected. It is important to know that you are not alone. Our experienced staff are here to help you connect with your baby and support your psychological wellbeing.

We support women for a brief period to assess their needs and provide a referral to further support services. Women who experience crisis are referred to the acute care service.
