Antenatal fact sheets for women and their families

COPE is committed to providing women and their families with high-quality information about antenatal mental health. 

As such, COPE has developed a series of antenatal mental health fact sheets – downloadable and printable information sheets and resources on antenatal mental health for women and their families. These fact sheets cover antenatal anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and borderline personality disorder during pregnancy.

All information contained in these resources are underpinned by the National Perinatal Mental Health Guideline.  The National Guideline relies on the latest evidence to recommend the most effective ways to identify, diagnose and treat mental health conditions that women may develop in pregnancy and the postnatal period.
