Perinatal mental health

First shown at the West Midlands Perinatal Mental Health Network meeting on 10th January 2019, these videos have been produced with women with experience of perinatal mental health conditions and their families to increase knowledge amongst women, their families and health professionals about perinatal mental illness. They have also been designed to be used in the training of health professionals.

The first video has been created to be shown to women and their families during the course of antenatal education and to be used by NHS health professionals in educational classes. It covers antenatal anxiety, maternal obsessive compulsive disorder, postnatal anxiety, postpartum psychosis, and postnatal depression.

The second video has been created to be shown to perinatal women and their families during educational classes and to be used by NHS health professionals with women in the postnatal period. It covers birth trauma, postnatal depression and a partners perspective of antenatal depression, postnatal anxiety, and bonding difficulties.
