PSYCHIATRIC SUPPORT THROUGHOUT THE REPRODUCTION CYCLE
Are you highly stressed due to the demands of being a new mother, or find yourself quietly suffering through the challenges of menopause alone? Dr. Sandhya Prashad can help! With several years of experience providing reproductive psychiatry care, she can work with you one-on-one to build a personalized treatment plan no matter what stage of the reproductive cycle you are at.
Reproductive psychiatry services available at Sandhya J. Prashad, MD include:
- Pre-pregnancy consultation: This is recommended for women with a psychiatric history. The goals include establishing a personalized treatment plan for dealing with psychiatric conditions from the demands of pregnancy and post-pregnancy, discussing risks and benefits, and reviewing available treatment options.
- Pregnancy evaluation: A baby’s health is largely dependent on the mental state of his or her mother. Therefore, these goals include maintaining stable mental health, examining all possible risks and benefits, exploring alternative treatment options, and creating a treatment plan.
- Postpartum evaluations: Our postpartum services are highly recommended for women experiencing postpartum psychiatric disorders. Treatment goals include reviewing all possible options for treatment and developing a treatment plan that can include safe medication options during breastfeeding.
- Other reproductive evaluations: This includes examination and support for women who have lost a baby during pregnancy, who are going through fertility treatment, facing challenges with premenstrual mood disorders, or undergoing frustrations with perimenopause and menopause.
