The National Register of Antipsychotic Medication in Pregnancy (NRAMP)
The National Register of Antipsychotic Medication in Pregnancy (NRAMP)is an observational, nationwide study involving women of child-bearing age who are taking, or have taken, antipsychotic medication during pregnancy. It follows the pathway of mother and baby during pregnancy and for the first 12 months of the baby's life, in order to develop evidence-based guidelines for the best use and effect of antipsychotic medication during pregnancy, thereby informing clinical treating teams with regard to the management of their patients in this vulnerable population group.
The investigators hypothesize that the provision of such evidence-based guidelines will improve the management and outcomes for mother and baby during pregnancy, birth and the postnatal phase, providing a positive impact on maternal and child health and wellbeing for present and future generations.
