The risk for development of a mood or psychotic disorder is highest in females during their reproductive years. This results in a high likelihood that pregnancy and psychiatric illness will intersect. The risk of psychotic disorders is not substantially reduced by pregnancy and psychiatric management is necessary to maximize maternal wellness among women with these conditions. Non-psychotic mood and anxiety disorders may improve across pregnancy although many women still require non-pharmacological and pharmacological treatment to stay well. Psychiatrists appreciate that the management of pregnant women with psychiatric illness entails “Treating for Two”, a moniker adopted by the Centers for Disease Control and other federal agencies. This presentation will review the prevalence of common psychiatric disorders in pregnancy, will discuss the longitudinal course of illness as well as management strategies for optimal care of pregnant women with psychiatric illness. Finally, the presentation will provide information on perinatal outcomes related to maternal psychiatric illness and to the pharmacological treatments that may be needed to provide optimal care for pregnant women.
