This guideline, commissioned by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE), covers the care and treatment of women with mental health problems during pregnancy and the first postnatal year. This includes depression, anxiety disorders, and severe mental illnesses such as bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.The impact of mental disorders on women, their infants and other members of their family can be greater during pregnancy and the postnatal period than at any other time. It is therefore of great importance that any problem is recognised and managed quickly and safely.
