Perinatal Mental Health Service

The Leeds Perinatal Mental Health Service provides specialist support to women experiencing significant mental health difficulties during pregnancy and the first year following a child’s birth.

The word “perinatal” refers to the period during pregnancy and extending to a year after childbirth.

If you are worried about your mental health or the mental health of a woman you know during her pregnancy, or in the first year following the birth of a child, then please get in touch with us – see the Contact Us section below for contact details.

This page provides information to mums, mums-to-be and their partners and carers. Please scroll down this page to find out more about:

  • What our service does to support mums, mums-to-be, their partners and their carers
  • Leaflets including translations into community languages and a British Sign Language film

If you are a new parent in Leeds you can also find a lot of helpful information on the Mindwell Leeds website.
