Event Details

Perinatal depression includes depression during pregnancy and up to 12 months postpartum. Rates of perinatal depression range from 12-15% of women, and incidence is known to be higher for vulnerable populations. Women with untreated depression during pregnancy are at risk of developing postpartum depression and suicidality. Postpartum depression interfers with infant attachment and bonding, and can lead to developmental disorders that last into adolescence. Additionally, important caregiving activities such as breastfeeding, sleep, keeping up with well-child visits and vaccine schedules can be compromised in depressed mothers. Understand which women are at risk for postpartum depression, screening methods, and treatment options to optimize outcomes for moms and babies.
