Perinatal Mental Health
Find your care
In Los Angeles county, 26% of pregnancies are affected by depressive symptoms during pregnancy and 47% report symptoms after pregnancy. The UCLA Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology recognizes this alarming trend, and is one of the few OB/GYN departments around the country to provide in-house psychiatric services to combat these staggering statistics. Our Maternal Outpatient Mental health Services (MOMS) Clinic is a collaborative program co-founded by UCLA Psychiatry and UCLA Obstetrics and Gynecology.
MOMS Clinic Program Directors:
- Misty Richards, MD, MS, Department of Psychiatry, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology
- Rashmi Rao, MD, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Division of Maternal Fetal Medicine
If you would like to learn more, please talk to your obstetrics provider for more information. Scheduling is by referral only.
