Having a baby is a time of significant change. South West Healthcare is committed to supporting your emotional wellbeing as you prepare for this. Strengthening our care for you, you will be offered a Wellbeing Appointment at around 18 weeks’ gestation that includes a free and confidential emotional and mental health screening check.
South West Healthcare currently offers (iCOPE) digital screening which can be completed on your own smart device or on an iPad that can be supplied to you. The results of this screening and any recommendations arising from the screening will be discussed with you.
If you or your care provider are concerned about any needs that you may have during your pregnancy and beyond, a referral to one of our support programs may be recommended. Emotional support is also available for non-birthing parents / partners.
