COVID-19 GP Obstetric Shared Care Update

From March 22, COVID-19 positive pregnant women booked to birth at Metropolitan Hospitals – Women’s and Children’s Hospital (WCH), Lyell McEwin Hospital (LMH) and Flinders Medical Centre (FMC) – will birth or be admitted for care at their booked Hospital, rather than transferred to FMC (as was the case previously), as we move into a next phase of living with COVID-19.


How one woman’s traumatic experience drove her investigation into pregnancy and mental health

Postnatal psychosis – including mania, hallucinations and delusions – is a serious mental illness that can develop in mothers soon after giving birth. It is reasonably rare, affecting one or two in every 1,000 women who have a baby. Most women recover completely.

But anxiety during and after pregnancy is common. It affects as many as 30% of pregnant women in Australia. Of these, one in five women will be diagnosed with an anxiety disorder.
