Highlights from a seminar at JFHC Professional Manchester, given by Dr Vaheshta Sethna, Post Doctoral Research Worker, King's College London, titled Perinatal mental health good practice case study: Channi Jumar Mother and Baby Unit. She discusses how the specialist mother and baby unit at the Bethlem Royal Hospital has been recognised as an example of best practice in caring for women suffering with severe mental illness during pregnancy or post-birth. A unique factor is the work of a developmental psychologist who works closely with the mothers and infants.
