About this product
- DescriptionDepression is the leading cause of disease-related disability among women. In particular, women of childbearing age are at high risk for major depression. Pregnancy and new motherhood may increase the risk of depressive episodes. Depression during the perinatal period can have devastating consequences, t only for the women experiencing it but also for the women's children and family. Perinatal depression encompasses major and mir depressive episodes that occur either during pregnancy or within the first 12 months following delivery. When referring to depression in this population, researchers and clinicians frequently have t been clear about whether they are referring to major depression alone or to both major and mir depression. Major depression is a distinct clinical syndrome for which treatment is clearly indicated, whereas the definition and management of mir depression are less clear. In this report, we refer to major depression alone by identifying it discretely as major depression. Mir depression is an impairing, yet less severe, constellation of depressive symptoms for which controlled trials have t consistently indicated whether or t particular interventions are more effective than placebo. In this report, we refer to this grouping as major or mir depression or by the more general terms depression or depressive illness. Perinatal depression, whether one is referring to major depression alone or to either major or mir depression, often goes unrecognized because many of the discomforts of pregnancy and the puerperium are similar to symptoms of depression. Ather mental disorder that can occur in the perinatal period is postpartum psychosis. Unlike postpartum depression, postpartum psychosis is a relatively rare event with a range of estimated incidence of 1.1 to 4.0 cases per 1,000 deliveries. The onset of postpartum psychosis is usually acute, within the first 2 weeks of delivery, and appears to be more common in women with a strong family history of bipolar or schizoaffective disorder. This review addresses the prevalence and incidence of perinatal depression, the accuracy of screening instruments for perinatal depression, and the effectiveness of interventions for women screened as high risk for developing perinatal depression. The three key questions (KQs) are: 1. What are the incidence and prevalence of depression (major and mir) during pregnancy and during the postpartum period? Are they increased during pregnancy and the postpartum period compared to n-childbearing periods? 2. What is the accuracy of different screening tools for detecting depression during pregnancy and the postpartum period? 3. Does prenatal or early postnatal screening for depressive symptoms with subsequent intervention lead to improved outcomes?
