Perinatal Mental Health is a team of experienced health professionals skilled in helping mothers with mental health conditions related to having a baby. Our specialised team offers assessment, treatment and advice for women who have developed mental illness or have had previous mental illness during the perinatal period (during pregnancy or up to one year after the baby is born).

Our team consists of mental health nurses, psychiatrist, and a clinical psychologist  with specialist knowledge and experience in this field.

Mothers and babies exist as a unit – one cannot be considered without the other. We work with women, their partners and family/whānau, as well as the services and health providers involved in their care.

We do not provide an urgent/crisis service and if the situation is urgent, please contact:

Crisis Assessment and Treatment Service

Who do we see?

  1. Women (of any age) who are experiencing moderate to severe mental health illness in pregnancy and postpartum
  2. Significant maternal distress related to second trimester termination, birth trauma and/or a stillborn loss
  3. Women wanting pre-conception advice
  4. Women with previous mental illness, birth trauma

We also provide a consultative secondary service to women who are current clients of other Mental Health & Addiction services.

Appointments occur at 222 Pembroke Street, Hamilton, at the clients’ home, or at another agreed venue.
