OBJECTIVE: To promote prompt identification and treatment ofperinatal depression and enhance preventive care for women at risk. METHODS: Using MEDLINE and PubMed searches, we reviewed the recent research on the origins, course, and consequences of pregnancy-related depression. RESULTS: Depressive disorders are more common in pregnancy and postpartum than widely assumed, and there is no predictable protective effect of pregnancy. Relapse rates are high, and the postpartum period represents a time of increased vulnerability to depression. CONCLUSION: Early identification and treatment ofperinatal depression will minimize morbidity and mortality for the woman, the child, and the family.
