Speaker Profile

Heather Watson is a Psychosocial Obstetrics & Gynecology Fellow, completing a year long Fellowship through the University of Manitoba, specializing in Addiction and Mental Illness and how they intersect with Reproductive Health. This ranges from meth-induced psychosis during labour to the decompensation of alcoholic cirrhosis in the menopausal period and all of the complex mood-related stops along the way. The fellowship includes in-patient and community based exposures, as well as “field” medicine bringing prenatal care to women in shelter, isolation and homeless encampments. She is thrilled to have the opportunity to explore alternative models of care in this population, and honoured to present today.
I do not have a relationship with a for-profit and/or a not-for-profit organization to disclose. I intend to make therapeutic recommendations for medications that have not received regulatory approval (i.e. “off-label” use of medication).
