Women who need inpatient care for a mental disorder within 12 months of childbirth should be admitted to a specialist Mother and Baby unit

NICE Antenatal & Postnatal Mental Health guidelines (2007)

At the woman's first contact with primary care, at her booking visit and postnatally (usually at 4 to 6 weeks and 3 to 4 months), healthcare professionals (including midwives, obstetricians, health visitors and GPs) should ask two questions to identify possible depression.

NICE Antenatal & Postnatal Mental Health guidelines (2007)

...networks should provide: a specialist multidisciplinary perinatal service in each locality, which provides direct services, consultation and advice to maternity services, other mental health services and community services
