145006 - Shared Maternity Care

  • : Online

Family violence, emotional well-being and the use of psychotropic medications can all have an impact on pregnancy. This activity provides support to healthcare professionals in the perinatal management of these patients. Another important update in this activity is to provide information on identifying and managing high-risk patients.

Relevance to General Practice

One of the key roles for the general practitioner is to help women with known mental health issues to prepare for pregnancy, as well as identify those at risk and help to guide management choices. There are established direct and indirect health consequences from physical intimate partner violence during pregnancy. In situations where medications are required for the management of mental health issues, the appropriate use of psychotropic medications during pregnancy is vital. Additionally, identifying and managing high-risk patients at different stages of pregnancy can reduce adverse consequences.
