I heard about a good resource today, for providers that might want added information about perinatal mental health; diagnosis and treatment of depression and anxiety disorders during pregnancy and postpartum.   The University of Illinois Department of Psychiatry has a Healthcare Provider Consultation Line Service, by phone and in written format.

There’s also a page for lay people, with information and (Illinois) links.
