notes (if applicable):
Why this is important:- Although only a relatively small number of women have a serious mental disorder during pregnancy and the postnatal period, those who do may need specialist care, including access to knowledge about the risks of psychotropic medication, specialist inpatient beds and additional intrapartum care. Managed clinical perinatal networks may be a way of providing this level of care in a cost effective and clinically effective way by allowing access to specialist care for all women who need it, whether or not they live near a specialist perinatal team.
