As an obstetrician, you are the primary point of support for women navigating the peripartum period. You are tasked with the tremendous responsibility of keeping mom and baby safe and healthy through pregnancy, and making sure labor, delivery, and recovery go well. It’s a big job!
While your training has uniquely prepared you for this, there is often room for more targeted education and support around the detection and treatment of perinatal mood + anxiety disorders (PMADs). That’s where I come in.
What can consultation address?
All of my consultation services are custom tailored to meet the needs of each specific practice, so we can do as much or as little as you would like. Some common areas that I can provide education, support, and services around include:
- Education on perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (PMADs), with heavy emphasis on symptoms and actionable assessment steps
- Audit of current PMAD screening procedures
- Implementation of new PMAD screening procedures
- Case consultation
- Local resource identification to create a referral network of therapists, programs, and specialized prescribers
Let me help you and your team increase your confidence in assessing and supporting mothers’ mental health. You already have the strong patient relationships that are crucial in this effort; I can help fill in the gaps.
