Pregnancy and Eating Disorders: a Professional’s Guide to Assessment and Referral

National Eating Disorders Collaboration, Australia

This booklet guides professionals through practical information regarding screening and assessment, referral to appropriate services and ongoing treatment and management for eating disorders in pregnant women specifically. 'As a midwife, obstetrician, gynaecologist, psychologist, dietitian, paediatrician, or early childhood nurse you posses the existing skill set, and the opportunities to screen for risk behaviours and to identify, monitor and refer any patient who may have or is at risk of developing an eating disorder. Help and close monitoring should be provided prior to conception, throughout the pregnancy and during the postpartum period.'
