If you are struggling with your mental health in pregnancy or after having a baby, or if you have a mental health problem and want advice about planning a pregnancy, your GP, midwife or health visitor are there to listen, and to offer you support and care.
If more support or treatment is needed, the Perinatal Mental Health Scotland (link below), outlines the five pathways which are designed to help women, their infants and families, know what specialist perinatal and infant mental health care is available in Scotland.
The pathways explain how specialist services can help through short videos and some useful links. We have also included information on local services, where that is available.
