About Mental Health, Substance Abuse and Pregnancy

Our multidisciplinary team of maternal-fetal medicine specialists, psychiatrists, nurses and social workers help optimize patients' wellness during pregnancy and beyond.
Whenever possible, we encourage patients to begin planning with your medical team before conception to optimize your health and prepare to manage pregnancy changes safely. Ideally, medication adjustments are started before or early in the pregnancy.
