I have today created this new entry. It needs a link to postpartum psychosis. Son of Fraser and Joyce (talk) 06:46, 11 October 2009 (UTC)Son of Fraser and Joyce, October 11th 2009Son of Fraser and Joyce (talk) 06:46, 11 October 2009 (UTC)

Evaluation of the references prior to a merger into Psychiatric disorders of childbirth[edit]

When the content is merged, it needs to evaluated based on the reliability of the source. I've listed the references below and included the problems with each one. Based on my evaluation, none of the content should be used to describe a current medical condition. Some of the references might be used for historical context in a description of the historical evolution of the disorders described. Sydney Poore/FloNight♥♥♥♥ 00:11, 13 March 2014 (UTC)

  • Regarding these - Lishman's book is the definitive textbook of organic psychiatry - looks like it had a fourth edition come out in 2009, which is pretty good for a big hardback text. The latest edition should be used. Cas Liber (talk · contribs) 01:36, 13 March 2014 (UTC)
  • Otherwise alot the article is listing some unusual conditions and stating they could occur in pregancy. Many of these would rpesent with neurological rather than psych symptoms. All the more for putting it in a broader category. Cas Liber (talk · contribs) 01:36, 13 March 2014 (UTC)
