    Severe mental illness, such as psychosis, bipolar disorder or severe depression, may be particularly detrimental, both during pregnancy and subsequently, given the dependence of an infant on its mother and the rapid adjustment to motherhood faced by first-time mothers. Therefore, accurate identification of both those at risk of developing, and those currently suffering from, mental illness during this time is highly desirable. Things aren't always black and white.
