Dr Carrie Ladd provides a comprehensive review of the NICE quality standard on antenatal and postnatal mental health. The module outlines what’s new in the guidance, what to do differently in your practice, how to help women make an informed decision about their mental health during pregnancy and in the postnatal period, areas of uncertainty relating to women’s access to psychological therapies, and consideration of some groups of women who may require extra support during this time.
