If you are currently pregnant and suffer from a complex, long term serious mental health condition and are on medication or if you believe you are becoming unwell with a serious postnatal illness for the first time and unable to access your GP, to discuss a referral to our service, please call the local perinatal team to talk about your needs - 020 8510 8151.
Perinatal Service (City & Hackney)
The Perinatal Service works with women who have moderate to severe mental health difficulties during pregnancy or within the first year after childbirth. These may be pre-existing illnesses or have their onset in the perinatal period. If there is a previous, current, or family history of mental health difficulties, a woman can consent to a referral to this service.
Members of the team have many different professional backgrounds: nursing, psychology, and medicine.
Please note that the City and Hackney Centre for Mental Health is now a smoke-free site.
