The underlying philosophy of our perinatal mental health unit is to help mothers adjust to motherhood, bond with their baby and for infants to develop a secure attachment to their primary carer.
Providing multidisciplinary care, this 6 bed perinatal mental health unit has been specifically refurbished to provide home-like, comfortable surroundings.
Admission to our specialist unit is always on a voluntary basis, with patients understanding and accepting the need to actively participate in their own recovery process. Women are admitted under the care of a psychiatrist.
Mothers can be admitted with their babies up to the age of 12 months.
