Bipolar disorder, postpartum psychosis and schizophrenia

While depression and anxiety are the most common types of mental health conditions in the perinatal period, there are less common conditions that can occur during pregnancy or the year following birth, and can be serious. These conditions include bipolar disorder, postpartum (puerperal) psychosis and schizophrenia. Further information can be found at the Centre of Perinatal Excellence (COPE).
