The main objectives of this work were to measure the prevalence of postpartum depression and/or anxiety among females in the Qaliubeya governorate to explore the underlying factors of these disorders and find if progesterone level has a role. A crosssectional study was conducted upon 500 postpartum females attending primary health care facilities in the Qaliubeya governorate. Data we...

This study's aim was to examine selected pregnancy, childbirth, and return-to-work correlates of overall self-rated health within the first month of work reentry after maternity leave.MethodsBetween December 2016 and January 2017, we surveyed women employed at a large, public Midwestern university who had given birth in the past five years (N = 249) to examine self-rated overall health in the first month of work reentry. Using ordinal logistic regression, we examined whether physical or psychological health problems during pregnancy, childbirth complications, length of maternity leave, and depression an...

AbstractThe effect of a novel mentalization-based parenting intervention was explored on prenatal self-reported mentalization (P-PRFQ), attachment (MFAS), depression (EPDS) and anxiety (STAI) among women with substance use problems. The participants were 90 pregnant women referred to obstetric outpatient care due to recent or current substance use and randomized into intervention (n = 46) and control (n = 44) groups. The intervention group received three interactive 4D ultrasound sessions and a week-by-week pregnancy diary. The control condition was constituted of treatment-as-usual in obstetric...

AbstractWhile correlational studies suggest that lactation may confer a certain level of protection from mental illness, this benefit is not uniformly expressed in all women who choose to breastfeed. We propose here that the neuroendocrine “resetting” induced by lactation may predispose toward positive affect states in a subset of hormone-sensitive mothers, with hormone-gene and hormone-environment interactions determining the ultimate psychological outcome. We find evidence to suggest that higher secretion of prolactin/oxytocin a s well as lower secretion of vasopression/androgens in lactating mothers may prot...

Drexhage, Veerle BerginkAbstractBackgroundMost studies of immune dysregulation in perinatal mood and anxiety disorders have focused on peripheral cytokines, but literature from non-perinatal mood disorders also implicates T-cell defects. We sought to characterize proportions of T-cell subtypes in women with postpartum depression.Materials and MethodsWe enrolled 21 women with postpartum depression (PPD), 39 healthy postpartum co...

We examined the incidence of mental health diagnoses in the first 12 postpartum months in mothers of an NAS infant compared to mothers of an infant without NAS.MethodsIn this retrospective, cohort study, data were extracted from MarketScan® database (2005 –2013). NAS newborns were identified using ICD-9 codes. Each mother of an NAS newborn was matched to a mother of a newborn without NAS on age at delivery, birth year, gestational age, NICU stay and maternal mental health diagnoses in the 9 months prior to delivery. Primary outcomes were claims fo r major depression, postpartum depression, anxiety, adjustmen...
