uni When untreated, postpartum depression (PPD) can severely, negatively affect maternal health, child development, and the wellbeing and functioning of the entire family. Yet, despite screening and treatment programs for PPD, many women who experience depression with onset in the postpartum year do not communicate their symptoms.

Conclusions: Pregnant women with a history of full or sub-syndromal SAD exhibited a different pattern of plasma tryptophan and kynurenine across the seasons compared to control mothers, independent of current mood state.

Maternal seasonality and SoC may be important considerations when studying tryptophan and its metabolites in human pregnancy and foetal brain development.
