As Postpartum Support International’s 2014 Annual Conference kicks off this weekend in Chapel Hill, NC, regular contributor Kathy Morelli shares her interview with Dr. Samantha Melzter-Brody as Kathy learns more about the only inpatient psychiatric Mother-Baby Unit in the USA. Perinatal mood and anxiety disorders affect up to 1 in 7 mothers, and at times, inpatient help is what is needed to properly serve the mother and her family. This unique five bed unit is offering this inpatient care to help mothers get treatment for their perinatal mental health illnesses. Learn more about this groundbreaking clinic in Kathy’s interview with Dr, Meltzer-Brody. – Sharon Muza, Community Manager, Science & Sensibility.
