Schizophrénie et maternité : les liens entre la mère et son enfant dans le post-partum

Abstract : Introduction: Perinatal psychiatry is a recent field of psychiatry, developed mainly in the United Kingdom, which was the first country to open mother-child units, aware of the importance of the links between mothers and their child. Today, it is known that the postpartum period is a period at risk of significant psychotic relapse for patients with schizophrenia. In addition, the number of these pregnant patients tends to increase. This article explore the specificities of the establishment of the mother-child link in these patients suffering from schizophrenia. Materials and Methods: A review of the literature was conducted from the Cairn, EMPremium and PubMed databases. Articles published in English and French between 2007 and 2017 have been included. Results: Many factors affect the relationship between mother and child. In these vulnerable patients management is essential during the postpartum but also during pregnancy. Conclusion: Additional studies on the experience of motherhood and on the mother-child relationship in patients with schizophrenia would optimize management. Thus, we could provide these mothers with support adapted to their needs, which would facilitate the establishment of the link between her and their child.
