Mother and baby unit

We are a specialist Mother and Baby unit, providing mental health care and treatment to women during the third trimester of pregnancy and up to one year after delivery.

We appreciate that having a baby can be a time of great joy but it can also be a time of stress and change for the body and mind, which in almost all parents creates changes in feelings and emotions.

We know that for many new mothers, mothers-to-be, and fathers, this can lead to complications like anxiety and depression.

In most cases, the difficulties get better with the help and support of family, friends, GPs and health visitors. However, some women require a more specialist service, such as we offer.
