Abstract


  • There is now a strong body of evidence confirming that antenatal mental health issues are a major cause of maternal morbidity, with a number of potentially adverse consequences for pregnant women, as well as for their children and family. However poorer outcomes for children are not inevitable, and can be addressed at least in part by prevention and early intervention strategies which integrate perinatal mental health, child health and public health.
