The perinatal period is a time of high risk for women who have a current or previous history of Bipolar Disorder, Schizophrenia and other psychotic illness. National guidelines and enquiry reports, including the NICE Antenatal and Postnatal Mental Health Guidelines and the reports of the Confidential Enquiries into Maternal Deaths in the UK (MBBRACE-UK) highlight the risks and the importance of ensuring effective care for this group of women. Individualised care, and effective partnership working between a range of professionals, ensures the best outcomes for women and their babies.
Led by Dr Lucinda Green, Consultant Perinatal Psychiatrist, this workshop will describe the risks for this group of women in the perinatal period, including the risk of postpartum psychosis and child safeguarding concerns. Complex cases will be used to discuss prevention, care and treatment with an emphasis on multi-agency working with women and their families.
