The perinatal period is associated with an increased risk of severe mental disorders. We summarise the evidence regarding the epidemiology, risk factors, and treatment of severe mental illness in relation to childbirth, focusing on bipolar disorder, affective psychosis, and schizophrenia. We discuss women with ongoing chronic conditions and those with the onset of new episodes of post-partum psychosis. Despite the importance of perinatal episodes, with suicide a leading cause of maternal death… Expand

The overall aim of the present study was to study the risk of first‐time psychiatric episodes requiring inpatient treatment after the birth of the first, second, or third child. Expand
Bipolar affective disorder in the postnatal period: investigating the role of sleep.
TLDR
During the perinatal period, there is no difference in sleep/wake activity in women with a history of a psychotic disorder, and use of mood stabilizer during pregnancy and at delivery appears important in preventing psychotic relapse in the postpartum. Expand
Perinatal episodes across the mood disorder spectrum.
TLDR
Although episodes of postpartum mood disorder are more common in bipolar I disorder and manic and psychotic presentations occur earlier in the post partum period, perinatal episodes are highly prevalent across the mood disorder spectrum. Expand

TLDR
Preliminary findings provide indirect evidence that sleep loss may be a precipitant of puerperal psychosis in women who are biologically predisposed to this illness. Expand
Women with nonorganic psychosis: mental disturbance during pregnancy
TLDR
Rates of menial disturbance during pregnancy were studied in 88 index women with a history of nonorganic psychosis and 104 demographically similar control women, and highly significantly increased rates of active mental disturbance were identified for index women, as compared with controls. Expand
