More Information

Scotland’s first Mother and Baby Unit is located at Leverndale Hospital in Glasgow.

The Mother and Baby Unit admits women who are experiencing severe mental illness in the later stages of pregnancy or if their baby is under 12 months old.  The six bedded unit enables mothers to be supported in caring for their baby whilst having care and treatment for a range of mental illnesses.

Maintaining this contact is critical to the wellbeing of both mother and baby as it not only aids the mother’s recovery but also strengthens the mother-infant relationship and infant development.

We offer a wide range of medical, psychological and psychosocial interventions to women from across the West of Scotland.
