In the April 2019 Australasian Psychiatry podcast Professor Phillip Boyce, Professor of Psychiatry at Sydney University speaks about the unique opportunities involved in the practice of perinatal psychiatry, as well as the barriers to research. The interview covers articles in the April issue which: advocate for increased numbers of Australian mother-baby units; demonstrate that pregnant women do not receive enough information about psychotropic medications; and reveal that as many as 50% of potentially fertile women on sodium valproate have not been made aware of potential teratogenic and neurodevelopmental side effects.
