Spent some time talking with an OB/GYN practice earlier this week. I wanted to share some useful finding. First I want to explain the term Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorder (PMAD). Includes woman whose symptoms begin during pregnancy and after delivery (Perinatal). It's not just depression woman experience. Having symptoms of anxiety is common (Mood disorders and anxiety disorders). So for many women calling it Postpartum Depression just isn't encompassing enough.
Thinking for yourself or someone else about:
Information, research and stats came from:
Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders training at the UMMHC and UNI Conference 2017 and
Cox, J.L., Holden,J.M., and Sagovsky, R. 1987 Detection of postnatal depression: Development of the 10-itemEdinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale.
