Depression is a ubiquitous disorder in childbearing women with up to 10% of women experiencing depression in pregnancy. Postpartum depression occurs in 12-16% of pregnancies making it a common complication. Moreover, these illnesses are frequently underdiagnosed in obstetric settings, and a recent report of the Surgeon General's Office confirms that many women do not access services, or receive treatment of inadequate intensity or duration. This paper provides current treatment guidelines to aid in appropriate diagnosis and treatment of depression in pregnancy and postpartum. Review of current literature on psychotropic medication use in pregnancy is also provided.
