Perinatal mental health midwife
My name is Keran Carter.
I am the specialist perinatal mental health midwife along with my colleague midwife Jayne Roberts.
We will be part of your care during your journey through pregnancy and into parenthood if your current or previous mental health difficulties are identified as severe or complex by your midwife/health care team.
We work closely with the specialist perinatal mental health service and other mental health teams, along with your maternity team, health visitor and GP.
It is our role to ensure that you are provided with compassionate, non-judgmental supportive care, to empower you to make your own decisions.
Together, we can discuss your preferences for care around pregnancy and birth. We will promote your relationship with your baby and provide you with additional information about how your mental health and medication can impact on your pregnancy and breastfeeding.
We are available as a resource for other professionals with regards to perinatal mental health to support women to access the most appropriate care / service to meet their needs.
