Emotional and mental wellbeing

Your mental health and emotional wellbeing is as important as your physical health. Planning for a pregnancy can be an emotional and sometimes overwhelming time. 

If you've got a mental health condition and are planning to have a baby, discuss your plans with your GP or psychiatrist. Your doctor can discuss with you:

  • your medicine
  • how pregnancy might affect your mental health
  • how your mental health might affect your pregnancy
  • the care you can expect

This is called pre-pregnancy or pre-conception counselling and can help you and your doctor plan for the healthiest start for you and your baby.
