Parent and Baby Psychology Service

A team of clinical psychologists offer brief psychological interventions for parents expecting a baby and parents with a baby in the first year who are struggling with the transition to parenthood.

The service provides a safe place for parents or expectant parents to share in confidence their thoughts and feelings about becoming a parent. It aims to improve the emotional wellbeing of parents, enabling them to develop positive relationships with their baby.

Parents with severe post-natal depression or chronic or severe mental health problems should be referred to the Perinatal Mental Health Team  

For further information, you can print a leaflet using the link at the end of this page. There is one leaflet for parents, and another for practitioners making referrals.
