Authors: Andrade C Abstract Many observational studies have found an association between antidepressant drug prescription during pregnancy and neurodevelopmental disorders such as autism spectrum disorder, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, and intellectual disability. The results of such studies cannot be considered conclusive because of the possible presence of inadequately measured, unmeasured, and unknown confounds. In this context, maternal anemia before or at but not after 30 weeks of gestation was recently associated with an increased risk of all 3 of these neurodevelopmental disorders. Additionally, ...

Abstract OBJECTIVE: To quantify the relationship between screening positive for depression and several indicators of the food and nutrition environment in Bangladesh. DESIGN: We used cross-sectional data from the Food and Agricultural Approaches to Reducing Malnutrition (FAARM) trial in Bangladesh to examine the association of depression in non-peripartum (NPW) and peripartum women (PW) with food and nutrition security using multivariable logistic regression and dominance analysis. SETTING: Rural north-eastern Bangladesh. PARTICIPANTS: Women of reproductive age. RESULTS: Of 2599 women, 40 % wer...

In the present study, we investigated the relationship between anemia and the risk of maternal depression using a meta-analysis. We searched PubMed, EMBASE, and the bibliographies of relevant articles in May 2019. Three evaluators independently reviewed and selected the eligible studies based on the predetermined select...

In a recent meta-analysis, IV iron resulted in a greater increase in hemoglobin levels vs oral iron in women with postpartum anemia. However, the cost-effectiveness of IV vs oral iron has not been previously studied. Our study objective was to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of IV vs oral iron in women with postpartum anemia, accounting for anemia-related postpartum depression and iron-related gastrointestinal (GI) adverse events (AEs).

SivasankaranAbstractDepression is one of the most common turmoil encountered by pregnant women. Mothers’ suffering from antenatal depression holds a greater risk in developing postpartum depression. This increases the need for early detection of antenatal depression which could reduce further complications. Although there are several aetiologies for antenatal depression, iron deficiency anaemia (IDA) proves to be a...

This study is a retrospective quality review of all cases of peripartum transfusion at an academic centre caring for high risk pregnancies from January 2013 to July 2018. All women admitted to the Labor and Delivery ward who received a red blood cell transfusion were identified through electronic blood bank database. We also identified the next age-matched woman to deliver who was not transfused. Charts were reviewed for risk factors for iron deficiency, evidence of prior iron deficiency, iron supplementation during pregnancy and fetal outcomes such as birth weight, gestational age at delivery, NICU admission and fetal mor...

BackgroundIron deficiency (ID) is the most common and widespread nutritional deficiency in both developing and developed countries (WHO, 2001; Mei et al., 2011). Women of child bearing age are at the highest risk, but this risk increases even more during pregnancy. The expansion of blood volume, growth of the fetus and placenta increase demand for iron to approximately 5.0mg/day by the third trimester (Met et al., 2011). Common symptoms of ID during pregnancy include fatigue, shortness of breath, and difficulty concentrating (WHO, 2001). Poor prenatal iron status is associated with diminished cognitive performance, languag...

This study aimed at identifying the extent and determinants of undernutrition among young pregnant women in Ethiopia. A multivariable regression analysis was fitted to identify determinants of undernutrition and anemia in a sample of 1,393 pregnant women. Risk ratios with 95% confidence interval were estimated. All the analyses were performed using STATA version 14 and adjusted for clustering. The study revealed that 38% of the women were undernourished and 22% were anemic. Improved maternal education (RR=0.94, 95% CI: 0.89, 0.98), higher wealth status (RR=0.72, 95% CI: 0.47, 0.95), higher minimum dietary diversity for wom...
