Overview

The consequences and treatment of psychiatric illness in pregnancy have received considerable attention during the past few years. In particular, mood disorders and their pharmacological treatment, as well as selected anxiety disorders have been studied with regard to a variety of neonatal and maternal outcomes. Solid data about the risks of psychiatric disorders in pregnancy and about treatment for these conditions can assist patients and their clinicians in illness management decisions. However, the literature is now complex and studies do not agree as to a number of maternal and neonatal outcomes that may be associated with psychiatric illness and its treatment. This course will focus on mood and anxiety disorders and provide a synthesis of the recent data that addressed the risks of psychiatric illness in pregnancy as well as the risks and benefits of psychiatric treatment.
