NHS commits to better mental health care for expectant and new mothers

Four NHS trusts will deliver more personalised care to expectant and new mothers with serious mental ill health.

The new mother and baby units will allow women to stay with their babies while receiving the specialist care they need.

These new units will provide in-patient support for women and their babies with the most complex and severe needs who require hospital care, who are experiencing severe mental health crisis including very serious conditions like post-partum psychosis.
