Purpose The purpose of this paper is to investigate the validity and accuracy of the Whooley questions for routine screening of maternal distress in Dutch antenatal care. Design/methodology/approach In this cohort design, the authors evaluated self-reported responses to the Whooley questions against the Edinburgh Depression Scale screening for antenatal depression, State-Trait Anxiety Inventory for general anxiety and the pregnancy-related anxiety questionnaire-revised screening for pregnancy-related anxiety, among Dutch pregnant women during th...

Abstract The impacts of prenatal propofol on cognition and emotion of offspring remain elusive. In the present study, pregnant rats in the second trimester were anesthetized with propofol. Neuronal apoptosis and proliferation was determined in fetuses and postnatal rats by detecting caspase-3 and BrdU expression. The offspring were subjected to several behavior tests. Then the pyramidal neurons in hippocampus and the expression of NR1, NR2A, and NR2B subunits of NMDA receptor and PSD-95 in frontal cortex were examined. Propofol exposure significantly increased the number of caspase-3+ cells in lateral ganglionic e...
