Perinatal mental health service

Specialist inpatient and community services are offered for mothers in the ante natal and post natal period. Pre-conception advice is also available for women on medication or receiving mental health services, who are planning to become pregnant. All referrals are triaged by the Perinatal team and if appropriate we would offer appointment to attend our Perinatal clinic either at Liverpool Women’s Hospital or University Hospital Aintree clinics or to be seen via a home visit. The team also gives advice or sign post to appropriate agencies if referrals are not appropriate.

This small team includes a consultant psychiatrist, senior mental health nurse and specialist midwife who specialise in perinatal mental health. Referrals are accepted from health professionals, we are unable to accept self - referrals. The team works with people being cared for within psychiatric inpatients units, community mental health teams, maternity services and liaises with mother and baby units when necessary.
