Psychiatrists are specialized medical doctors who require at least 12 years in higher education and 15,000 hours of clinical training before being allowed to independently diagnose, treat or prescribe medications. Perinatal and sports psychiatrists thoroughly understand the nuances when diagnosing, treating or prescribing for moms (or moms-to-be) and athletes.

(1) Pregnancy lowers or increases serum level of some medications. For instance, lithium requires a dose reduction 24-48 hours before delivery to lower the chance of infant toxicity.
(2) Propranolol is a common medication for performance anxiety.
