Perinatal Mental Health with Prof. Carmine Pariante

Perinatal Mental Health problems occur during pregnancy and the very early stages of a child's life. And while postnatal depression is now widely spoken about, mental health problems in the perinatal period are less so and can leave a mother feeling isolated, ashamed and helpless. 

Carmine Pariante is a professor of biological psychiatry at King’s College London, and a consultant perinatal psychiatrist at the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust. Specialising in the biological communication between the body and the brain, with a strong focus being in the areas of depression and fatigue, particularly in relation to the perinatal period and in those suffering from medical disorders, he discusses why it's so important to support a mother from a family, friends and societal level.
