Dr Lucinda Green

Dr Lucinda Green has been a Consultant Perinatal Psychiatrist in the NHS since 2002. She is an expert in providing care for women with a wide range of mental health problems who are planning a pregnancy, pregnant or postnatal. This includes women who are currently well but have a history of mental health problems, and are keen to have specialist care to ensure they stay as well as possible during pregnancy and after birth. Dr Green works collaboratively with women to help them make informed choices about their care and treatment, including helping them weigh up the risks and benefits of taking medication in pregnancy and when breastfeeding. Dr Green is experienced in working in close partnership with obstetricians, midwives, health visitors and GPs. Her aim is to help women enjoy pregnancy and the postnatal period and to ensure the best care and outcomes for women and their families.

Dr Green was Consultant Perinatal Psychiatrist at St Thomas’ Hospital (South London & Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust) from 2002 to 2016. She then moved to West London Mental Health Trust where she became Perinatal Clinical Lead for a new perinatal mental health service for the boroughs of Ealing, Hounslow and Hammersmith & Fulham, and Consultant Perinatal Psychiatrist for West Middlesex University Hospital.

Dr Green has delivered lectures, workshops and masterclasses on perinatal mental health problems and the development of perinatal mental health services at regional and national events including at the Royal College of Psychiatrists, Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists and the Royal Society of Medicine. She has many years’ experience of teaching and training a range of professionals to help them to improve the care they provide for women with mental health problems in pregnancy and the postnatal period.
