In addition to consultations around pregnancy and lactation, Dr. Dossett provides consultation for women during other times of reproductive or hormonal change:
Women with a history of postpartum depression who want advice on how to manage future pregnancies
Women with significant mood and anxiety symptoms related to their menstrual cycle
Women with significant mood and anxiety symptoms during perimenopause
Women with other psychiatric concerns related to times of reproductive change
These services will be offered with each patient’s particular needs in mind. There are many different ways to address most psychiatric illnesses, and Dr. Dossett will collaborate with each patient to choose the types of treatment that are most appropriate. This collaboration will be honest, open, and based on the best of medical research, as well as Dr. Dossett’s training experience. These recommendations can then be used by each woman in her regular health care setting. Please note that Dr. Dossett is not able to provide ongoing care or prescriptions, but that this will be expected of your regular prenatal or mental health care provider.
