This research investigates different ways to improve the care provided to pregnant women and new mothers with mental health problems. First, it suggests how to help more women to choose treatment that works. Second, it tests whether a particular programme for new parents would be value for money. Third, it proposes that important costs and outcomes are usually missing from this type of research, and that including them could change funding decisions. Lastly, it highlights the bigger mental health burden faced by poorer mothers, and how this might contribute to a lifetime of disadvantage for their children.
