One in five perinatal women are likely to have perinatal mental health problems; this constitutes a serious public health issue and extremely adverse impacts for families.
The long-term economic cost of perinatal metal health problems in the UK is £8.1bn. This serious burden for women, infants and society requires attention to prevent the progression of intergenerational problems and to reduce the huge financial burden to the NHS and society.
Within the Maternal Health and Wellbeing Research Group, we are carrying out leading research that aims to support women’s mental health and prevent perinatal mental health problems.
Do we need a better understanding of the efficacy and cost-effectiveness of care interventions?
