Maternal Mental Health Clinic
The UCSD Maternal Mental Health Clinic was created in 2007 to address the mental health needs of women. The clinic provides comprehensive mental health care to women with depression, anxiety and other emotional concerns during times of reproductive transition.
Specific areas of focus include:
Services provided range from single-visit consultations to ongoing medication management and psychotherapy. When medication is given before, during or after pregnancy, we pay specific attention to discussing the risks and benefits of each treatment during pregnancy and the postpartum, and decide on a treatment plan with you.
Common questions we address during care include:
Therapists use a wide variety of techniques to help women recover from illness and maintain health. We also work closely with other doctors and health care providers throughout the community to coordinate care during infertility, pregnancy and the postpartum.
