The Mother and Baby Unit is a 13 bedded unit committed to providing evidence based treatments for mothers with mental health problems and their babies. We aim to reduce risk and establish a relationship between the mother and her baby, which prepares them for a lasting return to the community. We offer a holistic treatment programme and encourage the involvement of partners in the process.
Our service is for women who develop a mental illness or have a relapse of serious mental illness during pregnancy, and women who have developed postnatal depressions, post-partum psychosis or have had a relapse of serious mental illness following the birth of their baby.
We also provide a unique parenting assessment service for local and national authorities across the United Kingdom. We undertake assessment of women or couples and their infant, where there is a potential risk of safeguarding issues arising from the parents’ mental health problems. The successful candidate will be given the opportunity to work alongside a team committed to Perinatal Psychology and will be provided with supervision and training in order to flourish within the service.
We are committed to helping to develop the people that come to work with us. We know that the Trust can only be as good as the people who work here and we’ll invest in you to maximise that potential. That’s why we really welcome and value people so highly. In short, if you’ve got what it takes we’d be delighted for you to come and work with us.
Informal visits and welcomed and encouraged.
