Monash Health – Mother and Baby Unit

The Mother/Baby Unit inpatient program offers specialised assessment and management of women with psychiatric illness in the ante natal and post natal period. Non-toddling infants, up to 12-months of age are admitted with their mothers. A multidisciplinary team within a bio-psycho-social model focuses on the psychiatric care of the mother, the emotional and physical development of the infant, and the interaction between the mother and the infant. Other family members are also included in the treatment plan.
