The Women’s Place – Center for Reproductive Psychiatry at Texas Children’s Pavilion for Women is a unique multidisciplinary center focused on the care and treatment of women’s mental health issues related to a woman’s reproductive cycle, such as mood disorders or psychiatric conditions during pregnancy, postpartum, or perimenopause.
One of only a handful of such programs in the United States, The Women’s Place provides specialized care from Baylor Medicine reproductive psychiatrists – physicians with expertise in both women’s health and psychiatry – along with licensed psychologists and social workers.
Patients benefit from a warm, compassionate, supportive environment, and a collaborative approach to care, with our reproductive psychiatrists working closely with other Baylor Medicine specialists including specialists in general Obstetrics and Gynecology, Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility, Maternal-Fetal Medicine, Prenatal and Reproductive Genetics, Gynecologic Oncology, menopause, and others.
At The Women’s Place, Baylor Medicine psychiatrists and psychologists offer expert evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of women’s mental health needs including:
- Premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), postpartum depression, and postpartum psychosis
- Mood and anxiety disorders related to infertility, menstrual cycles, hormonal changes, or chronic pelvic pain from endometriosis
- Management of psychiatric medications impacting fertility, pregnancy, or breastfeeding
- Coping with a diagnosis of infertility, a fetal anomaly, reproductive loss, or gynecologic cancer
- Attachment difficulties between mother and baby
