Dr Lucinda Smith is a perinatal psychiatrist, Co Founder and Director of GLOW Perinatal Emotional Health and Wellbeing Clinic Berwick, who has worked in perinatal mental health since 2006. Glow Clinic was founded with Dr Adaobi Udechuku and opened in February 2016.
I see expectant and new parents, and their infants to provide comprehensive assessment and management plans for problems such as post natal depression and anxiety, depression and anxiety during pregnancy (Antenatal depression / anxiety), adjustment to parenting, parent infant relationship difficulties, and management of bipolar disorder around pregnancy. I can advise around the use of anti depressant / anti anxiety medications during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
“I am passionate about perinatal mental health and improving outcomes for mums, infants and families, enabling people to reach their full potential. I know that optimising all aspects of health and wellbeing during this critical period of life can improve outcomes for future generations. I see this as the ultimate outcome of early intervention and preventative medicine.
I combine an eclectic and holistic approach including individual therapy, parent-infant therapy and medication, if needed. I consider all aspects of health including exercise, nutrition; and finding meaning, enjoyment and connection with infants and children.
I have a keen interest in mindfulness and how this can benefit new parents during the transition to parenthood. I have completed training in specific parent-infant therapies including Watch Wait and Wonder and Circle of Security.
I find it a pleasure and a privilege to work together with mothers and families during this exciting and challenging time.
Outside of perinatal psychiatry I have a keen interest in education and training, with heavy involvement in training new psychiatrists.
I am also a mother so am well aware of the challenges and difficulties that come with parenting young children. When I find the time I like to look after my own mind, body and GLOW by reading extensively and de-stressing at the gym
