Mother and Baby Units

Support for mothers and their babies

Mother and Baby Units allow the mother to receive the right medical care she needs, as well as ensuring that the mother and baby remain together. The majority of Mother and Baby Units offer an inpatient and outpatient service, you would need to be referred by your G.P, community mental health team or midwife. If there isn’t a Mother and Baby Unit in your area, it may be possible to transfer to another ‘NHS trust’ area. According to the Department of Health only two to three admissions are expected in every 1000 mothers, with the remaining admitted between four and six weeks. Mother and Baby Units offer support from when the baby is born up to the age of twelve months, after this time the mother will received support from the community mental health team if required.

Mother and Baby Units are designed to offer a safe therapeutic environment to ensure the wellbeing of both mother and child are maintained.

There are a total of 20 Mother and Baby Units set up across the UK. To find your nearest Mother and Baby Unit please look at the list below or call Pandas Foundation on 0843 28 98 401 and a member of our team will be happy to help.

‘I was in a Mother and Baby Unit for quite a long time when LexiRose was small. It was a really tough time but being in the Mother and Baby Unit made the world of difference! I dread to think how different things would have been without the care and support I received. To be honest, I probably wouldn't be here to say this now! They were always there to listen to me, they helped to keep me safe, they encouraged me to attend therapy sessions to work on what was going on with me at the time, they encouraged me to start to take independent care of LexiRose and build the bond I wished for desperately but felt was missing but through it all they were always two steps behind me in case I stumbled and needed their support! My advice for anyone who finds themselves needing the support of a Mother and Baby Unit is to try not to be scared, be completely honest and open about what is going on and know that they are all there to help and support you all the way until you are able to support yourself again!’ Haley Tokley – Braintree, Essex
