Reproductive Psychiatry

Reproductive Psychiatry is a subspecialty of psychiatry that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of mental health needs for people who have psychiatric symptoms related to reproductive cycle changes. This may include changes during pregnancy, postpartum, perimenopause or menopause.

Our Psychiatrist nurse Practitioner is certified in the treatment of Perinatal Mental Health which includes changes during pregnancy, postpartum (up to one year post-delivery), infertility, miscarriage, breastfeeding challenges or loss.

A Psychiatry consult may include assessment, diagnosis, evaluation and treatment recommendations. Treatment options may include medication management, appropriate therapy, adjunct integrative treatments (i.e. nutraceuticals) and/or referrals to supportive collaborative care. A consult may be beneficial for patients who are experiencing symptoms of depression, anxiety or other emotional distress that is affecting functioning at work or home, bonding with their baby/children or caring for themselves/children.
