Cover image for lecture: Maternal Mental Illness

Lecture Overview

A frank look at the rates of maternal mental illness paints an interesting picture: never before have rates of mental illness in pregnant women been so high. But there are options. While some medications have been shown to cause detrimental effects to the unborn foetus, newer medications on the market can be taken safely during pregnancy. Join Dr Treasure McGuire as she explores what is, and what is not, OK.
