What is Reproductive Psychiatry?

Reproductive psychiatry is a sub-specialty of general psychiatry that focuses on the unique mental health needs and treatment of women who have psychiatric symptoms related to reproductive cycle transitions. Reproductive psychiatrists are experts in the diagnosis and management of mood and anxiety symptoms that occur around the menstrual cycle, across pregnancy and in the postpartum, and during the perimenopausal years. Our clinic focuses on providing evaluations to help patients (and their providers) understand the cause of these symptoms and use evidence-based approaches to manage symptoms appropriately.

The Johns Hopkins Center for Women's Reproductive Mental Heath was established:

What services are offered at the The Johns Hopkins Center for Women's Reproductive Mental Heath?

We provide clinical evaluation and research studies to address the needs of women with reproductive psychiatric symptoms. Our clinical evaluations begin with an interview conducted by one of our consult staff (see below), and typically last 2-3 hours. Our experienced clinic consult staff will provide you and/or your providers with our treatment recommendations.

Evaluation Services


Clinic Evaluation Staff

Note: The Johns Hopkins Center for Women's Reproductive Mental Heath is a teaching clinic. Your appointment may be completed by our postdoctoral fellow or our nurse practitioner; in those cases, you will see only that provider on the day of your appointment, but all cases are reviewed and supervised by the attending physicians. Your appointment may also be completed by one of our resident physicians; in these cases, the resident physician will collect most of your information but you will also see an attending physician at the end of your appointment. 

Request an Appointment

To request an appointment, please select the type of evaluation you are requesting from the list above. Please complete the applicable form and follow directions to prepare for your evaluation appointment. After reviewing your initial paperwork, we will determine if our clinic is appropriate for your needs.

Please note: If you are in your late pregnancy or immediate postpartum we will make every effort to have you seen as soon as possible. For other types of appointments, the average waiting time is at least 4-8 weeks.

If you are seeking psychiatric evaluation for non-reproductive related psychiatric concerns (not pre-pregnancy, pregnant, postpartum, menstrual or perimenopause – related psychiatric symptoms), we recommend that you visit the main JHH Psychiatry website to find an appropriate clinic within the Johns Hopkins System.


We are also actively recruiting participants for ongoing research studies. The combination of research with clinical practice keeps our psychiatrists up to date with evidence-based and high quality practices. We offer research studies for:

  • pregnant women
  • women with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)
  • women with menstrual cycle-related mood symptoms
