Effects of psychological treatment of mental health problems in pregnant women to protect their offspring: randomised controlled trial.

CONCLUSIONS: Prenatally initiated CBT did not improve maternal symptoms or child outcomes among non-help-seeking women with antenatal depression or anxiety. Our findings are not in line with present recommendations for universal screening and treatment for antenatal depression or anxiety, and future work may include the relevance of baseline help-seeking.

We examined convergent and factorial validity and concordance rates of the measures.Results: Levels of distress were high, with anxiety the most reported symptom. The CORE-10 showed good convergent validity. A two-factor structure representing 'symptoms' and 'ways of coping' best fit this sample. Internal reliability of the symptoms' factor was good.Discussion: The self-selected online sample may not be representative of pregnant women in the third trimester and a diagnostic interview was not used. Based on this validation study, the CORE-10 potentially offers an assessment of a broad range of symptoms of postnatal distres...
