Perinatal Psychiatry Service
We offer assessment, treatment and support to women across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland who develop severe mental illnesses during pregnancy or following delivery of their babies. This support is available until their babies are a year old.
Our Perinatal Mental Health Service provides psychiatric treatment and support to women. Assessments are carried out in outpatient clinics or within the home setting. Care is provided by a consultant and a specialist nursing team.
The team take referrals from healthcare professionals who are working with women who are registered with a LLR GP who are experiencing significant issues with their mental illness and are either pregnant or have given birth in the past 12 months. The team will also work with women who have an existing mental illness to offer preconception advice.
Referrals should be made on the referral form and emailed to email@example.com
