Perinatal Mental Health
What does Better Births say?
Perinatal mental illness affects up to 20% of women, and covers a wide range of conditions. If left untreated, it can have significant and long lasting effects on the woman and her family.
Perinatal mental health problems can also have long-standing effects on children’s emotional, social and cognitive development.
The wellbeing of women and their families is as important as the physical wellbeing of the women and developing baby – the NHS needs to consider this in an integrated way.
