Abstract

The authors describe a group of pregnant psychiatric patients admitted to a psychiatric service in an urban hospital. A high rate of involuntary admission (44%), homelessness (36%), and substance abuse (64%) was noted. In this group of high-risk obstetric patients, we identified risk factors associated with noncompliance with ongoing prenatal care. Brief psychiatric hospitalization can be an important aspect in improving obstetric outcome by providing an opportunity to collect obstetric information and promote ongoing prenatal care.
