Pregnancy & Postpartum

Whether you’re planning for a pregnancy or are already pregnant, you want to do what’s best for your baby without neglecting your own mental health. As a specialist in reproductive psychiatry, I provide personalized consultation to women and their partners about antidepressants and other psychiatric medications during pregnancy and breastfeeding. My recommendations are based on multiple factors, including medical and psychiatric history, patient and partner values and preferences, and the most recent scientific literature. I stay up to date on the constantly evolving data in order to provide detailed, nuanced recommendations. With your permission, I collaborate with your Ob/Gyn and other mental health providers, in order to provide the best possible care. I am happy to see women for a one-time consultation, or to continue with treatment through pregnancy and beyond.
