Conclusion: The results suggest early routine screening for anxiety and depressive symptoms amongst the Chinese pregnant women with a history of recurrent miscarriage.

In Reply Although we agree with Wisner and Yonkers that our findings can potentially be explained by residual confounding by indication, we have performed several additional sensitivity analyses to validate our results. First, the impact of the diseases for which benzodiazepines are prescribed was addressed in the main analysis where statistical adjustments were made for the diagnoses of the 2 main indications (mood and anxiety disorders and insomnia) and documented proxies of these diseases (concomitant exposure to antidepressants and/or antipsychotics, psychiatrist visits, comorbidities, and emergency department visits a...

Perinatal psychiatric illnesses are increasingly recognized as a public health concern. Over the past two decades, multiple aspects of postnatal depression have been studied, including its risk factors, screening, treatment, and impact on mother, child, and family dynamics (Robertson et  al., 2004, Bruno et al., 2017, Murray and Cooper, 1997, Anding et al., 2016). As a result, intervention initiatives have been widely implemented in developed countries (World Maternal Mental Health Day 2017). In Singapore, one such intervention program has shown promising results in objective m easures of maternal emoti...

Recent research published in the November 2017 issue of Brain, Behavior, and Immunity suggests that a woman’s immune response in the brain may decrease during pregnancy and the postpartum period. These findings, discussed by the Brain and Behavior Research Foundation, might help to establish a connection between the brain’s immune function and the anxiety and mood disorders that are common throughout pregnancy and the postpartum period. Previous research has shown that during pregnancy, the response of the body’s peripheral immune system (the part of our protective system that does not protect the brain)...

The objective of this study was to obtain further information about the health status and health needs of IDP women and children, aged 15 and under, living in the informal settlements in central Iraq. The study was conducted between February and June 2015. Our focus was on settlements in Baghdad, Karbala and Kirkuk, which between them hosted an estimated 688,944 IDPs, about a third of Iraq’s IDPs.14 This estimate is undoubtedly low as some IDPs were not counted or registered. It is the hope that information from this study will help improve access to services for this vulnerable population. These governorates were ...

Discussion Appendicitis results from a closed loop obstruction of a blind-ending tubular structure arising from the cecum. It is a common cause of abdominal pain. It is the most frequent condition leading to emergent abdominal surgery in pediatrics. The combination of obstruction, edema, bacterial overgrowth, increased inflammatory process and increased intraluminal pressure leads to abdominal pain and possibly perforation. Appendicitis occurs in all age groups but is rare in neonates. The peak age is 6-10 years old. Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is an inflammatory disease of the uterus, fallopian tubes and adjacent p...

Discussion Postpartum depression affects 10 to 20% of women after delivery, but less than half of these women are detected. Postpartum depression is defined as major depressive episodes with symptom onset during pregnancy or in the first four weeks following delivery. There is recognition that symptoms may begin later after delivery but the mother would not be diagnosed with PPD. PPD is distinct from postpartum blues which occur in 50 to 80% of new mothers. They occur within 1 to 2 days of delivery and resolve within 10-14 days of delivery. Symptoms include anxiety, depression, irritability, tearfulness, poor sleep, and a...
