Perinatal Community Mental Health Team - South Staffordshire

We provide specialist input to women experiencing significant mental health difficulties during pregnancy and the first year following a child’s birth. 

We also work to minimise the risk of relapse in those women who are currently well but who have a history of severe mental illness.

What are perinatal mental health conditions?

Women can experience any kind of mental health problems during and after pregnancy, but there are some that are particularly common or are specifically linked to pregnancy and childbirth including:

  • Perinatal depression
  • Perinatal anxiety
  • Perinatal OCD
  • Postpartum psychosis
  • Postpartum PTSD

How do I refer?

If you feel that you need help from the perinatal CMHT, please speak to your GP, midwife or health visitor who can refer you to the service as needed.
