  1. Table shows the number of women with one or more mental health inpatient admissions during the perinatal period (PNP) where the first contact is also within PNP and the total number of birth episodes in 2017 (events with missing ethnicities are included (assumed to be missing at random and are apportioned across all ethnicities in proportion to known ethnicities)). Crude and directly age-standardised rates per 1000 birth episodes are shown along with corresponding 95% confidence intervals
  2. LCL lower confidence limit, UCL upper confidence limit
  3. *Rate is significantly different (p < 0.05) from the White British group
  4. **Numbers are suppressed due to small numbers < 5
