Should a mother suffering from puerperal psychosis be separated from her baby?
Ideally not. Clearly, if adequate supervision to guarantee the absolute safety of the baby cannot be offered, then the baby may be cared for separately while ensuring frequent supervised union of mother and baby in the course of each day. Efforts should always be made to keep them together, as long as the safety of the baby can be absolutely guaranteed.
