Association of dietary patterns and degree of food processing with feelings of depression in pregnancy

Conclusions: greater adherence to the “ Brazilian traditional ” and “ healthy ” dietary patterns was inversely associated with feelings of depression during pregnancy, possibly mediated by the degree of industrial processing of the foods.Resumo Objetivos: investigar a rela ção entre padrões alimentares e o grau de processamento de alimentos com sentimento de depressão na gestação. Métodos: estudo transversal conduzido entre 784 gestantes adultas de Ribeirão Preto, SP, em 2011-2012. O sentimento de depressão foi obtido por questionário estruturado. Dois inqu éritos recordatórios de 24 horas foram obtidos (24ª- 39ª semanas de gestação) e ajustados pelo Multiple Source Method. Quatro padrões alimentares foram identificados: “ tradicional brasileiro ” , “ lanches ” , “ caf é ” e “ saud ável ” . Modelos de regress ão logística ajustados foram empregados para investigar a relação entre os tercis dos padrões alimentares e do percentual energético (% E) de alimentos segundo o grau de processamento industrial com sentimento de depressão (sempre/a maior parte do tempo vs. às vezes/nunca). Resultados: 12% das mulheres reportaram sentimento de depressão na gestação. Mulheres com maior adesão aos padrõ...

AbstractThis paper examines the relationship between maternal psychological well-being and specific outcomes amongst children and adolescents in Peru. First, it assesses the impacts of maternal depression and life satisfaction on health and life satisfaction of children. Then, it evaluates the impacts of maternal psychological well-being on adolescent risk behavior. Prior research focuses predominately on effects in developed country contexts, but this paper aims to shed light on the impacts in an impoverished setting. Using panel data from the Young Lives Survey, the author finds that children ’s self-reported life ...

(CNN) — Moms-to-be who undergo physical or mental stress during their pregnancies are less likely to have a boy and may also have a higher risk of preterm birth, according to a study published Monday. “The womb is an influential first home,” said lead author Catherine Monk, director of women’s mental health in OB/GYN at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Irving Medical Center. “We do know that males are more vulnerable in utero, and presumably the stress in these women is of a long-standing nature,” Monk said. Nature typically assures there are an average of 105 boys born for every...

The new Doctors of the World Clinic in east London was launched today. After 16 years of work in the area, our clinical services have now moved to purpose built premises which will allow our volunteer doctors and caseworkers to support more patients than ever. It is imperative that we are able to see more patients and scale up our services, as we estimate that between 50,000 and 500,000 people in the UK need us. These are patients who have been too frightened to go to see a doctor because they are scared that they will be deported by the Home Office, that their data will be shared, and that they will face bills of thousand...

ConclusionPrescription of ADs during pregnancy in Denmark increased steadily from 1997 to 2011 but decreased sharply thereafter. More research is needed to show whether the same trend exists in other populations, like women of reproductive age, men of reproductive age, and old people, and other countries. We also need to find explanation for the decreasing trend in recent years and potential risk for untreated depression.

Abstract The postpartum period, defined as the 12 weeks after delivery, is an important time for a new mother and her family and can be considered a fourth trimester. Outpatient postpartum care should be initiated within three weeks after delivery in person or by phone, and may require multiple contacts with the patient to fully address needs and concerns. A full assessment is recommended within 12 weeks. Care should initially focus on acute needs and risks for morbidity and mortality and then transition to care for chronic conditions and health maintenance. Complications of pregnancy, such as hypertensive disorde...

CONCLUSION: Indigenous women are at increased risk of mental health problems during the perinatal period, particularly depression, anxiety, and substance misuse. However, resiliency among Indigenous women, cultural teachings, and methodological issues may be affecting estimates. Future research should utilize more representative samples, adapt and validate diagnostic and symptom measures for Indigenous groups, and engage Indigenous actors, leaders, and related allies to help improve the accuracy of estimates, as well as the well-being of Indigenous mothers, their families, and future generations.
