The New Horizon Mother and Baby Centre offers a specialist inpatient service for women suffering from mental illness in the postnatal period, particularly when there are issues relating to attachment and when the mother's mental illness has an impact on her ability to care for her baby. After 36 weeks of pregnancy, admission may be offered to the New Horizon Mother and Baby Centre if it is felt to be the best care option.
The team also offers advice and liaison to professionals working with women in other settings in the perinatal period (pre-conception, antenatally and up to the baby's first birthday).
The team includes psychiatrists, mental health nurses and nursery nurses, health care assistants and an occupational therapist. The New Horizon Mother and Baby Centre has strong links with maternity services, primary infant mental health specialists, health visitors and children and young people's services.
The unit provides a 24/7 service and is available for emergency admission.
