Service description

In the Maternal Mental Health Team we help women and birthing people with moderate to severe difficulties related to birth trauma, baby loss, and tokophobia.

Referral criteria

This service is for those experiencing difficulties following a traumatic birth experience or baby loss, or if they are struggling with severe anxiety about their pregnancy or upcoming birth and would like additional support.

Once you have been referred to the Maternal Mental Health Service, your referral will be discussed to decide if we are the right service to support you.

For support with complex or severe mental health problems relating to pregnancy, childbirth and the first year following a child’s birth, please visit the Perinatal Mental Health Service webpage.
