Perinatal Mental Health Unit

The Perinatal Mental Health Unit provides specialised care for women with mental health conditions that develop or exacerbate during pregnancy or in the post natal period.

These may include:

  • Mood and Anxiety Disorders
  • Depression
  • Stress and Grief
  • Bipolar disorders
  • Schizophrenia
  • Post-traumatic Stress Disorders
  • Medication Changes

Providing multidisciplinary care, this 6 bed unit has been specifically refurbished to provide a calm and relaxed retreat for families. Admission to the unit is voluntary, with patients actively participating in their recovery. Women are admitted under the care of a psychiatrist and encouraged to have their babies with them during the hospital stay.
