Mental health support for pregnant women

This service is for pregnant women with a pre-existing mental illness or those at risk, and women who encounter problems for the first time during or after their pregnancy.

A professional (such as your GP, midwife, health visitor, children’s centre staff or similar) can refer you to the MIMHS.

If you are concerned about your own mental health, or that of a friend or family member, please talk to one of these professionals about making a referral.

Alternatively you or a family member can self-refer to the service. MIMHS accept self-referrals from those experiencing significant mental ill health.
