The field of reproductive psychiatry recognizes that many people go through significant changes in their bodies because of reproduction and reproductive transitions. It is incredibly common for these physical changes to cause mental distress. At Mindful Health Solutions, our providers can guide you through your transition and find a path that works best for you.
What is Reproductive Psychiatry?
Reproductive Psychiatry is the treatment of mental illness during reproductive transition periods, such as infertility, pregnancy, pregnancy loss, premenstrual dysphoric disorder, and perimenopause.
Who is Reproductive Psychiatry for?
Our talented team of clinicians and support staff are dedicated to providing compassionate care and the most comprehensive psychiatric treatment options under one roof, including medication and innovative therapies like TMS and esketamine nasal spray.
- Transgender men
- Nonbinary and genderqueer individuals
- Any person with a uterus, ovaries, vagina, etc.
- Any of MHS’ female identifying patients may need reproductive psychiatry expertise at some point
Reproductive Psychiatry is for any existing or new patient of Mindful Health Solutions who is experiencing mental health concerns related to pregnancy, postpartum, fertility, menopause, or any other hormonal changes related to reproduction.
Mental health concerns surrounding reproduction are common. While most patients see an OB/GYN for primary care, many OB/GYN providers are not adequately trained to assess and treat common psychiatric conditions.
What common problems does Reproductive Psychiatry address?
- Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders (PMADs), which impact people during pregnancy and during the first year postpartum
- Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD), which is a disorder where very severe PMS symptoms can result in mood changes
- Depression and/or anxiety related to fertility, menopause, and/or Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
- ADHD and/or bipolar disorder management before, during, and after pregnancy
Your path to treatment:
Treatment plans are customized to each, individual patient and may include medication management, psychotherapy, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), and/or esketamine nasal spray, when appropriate. Our talented team of clinicians and support staff is dedicated to working with patients collaboratively to find a treatment plan that works for them. Our goal is to help patients find relief in a way that feels good and that works with their transitioning bodies.
Why Mindful Health Solutions?
Mental health conditions surrounding reproduction are extremely common. However, most primary care physicians and other mental health service providers aren’t adequately trained in how to balance a patient’s mental well-being with the changes that are happening within their body.
Mindful Health Solutions offers affordable, evidence-based reproductive psychiatry services. Within the Reproductive Psychiatry program, our skilled and experienced psychiatrists specialize in reproductive mental health and collaborate with the patient to find a treatment plan that is right for their unique situation. Together, our providers work to remain up to date on the standard of care, ensuring that patients get the best quality of treatment possible.
Overall, we understand the importance of patient-centered care and understand that one size does not fit all when it comes to mental health treatment. Patients respond well to the dynamic menu of treatments we offer, which includes traditional medication management and psychotherapy as well as cutting-edge alternatives.
Mindful Health Solutions also wants to make treatment comfortable and accessible. If patients are unable to physically come into the office or prefer a virtual appointment, Mindful Health Solutions offers telepsychiatry. This allows patients to get care from wherever they are in the state. We also foster a strong culture of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. Our therapists strive to embody a sense of awareness, respect, and humility with regard to cultural differences. And last but not least, we accept most major insurances.
