The lack of continuity of health care for women after the postpartum visit can be especially problematic for women with perinatal depression (depression during pregnancy and up to 1  year postpartum). Many women have the onset of depression in the third trimester or postpartum, and 23%–46% of women with postpartum depression (PPD) continue to have symptoms for 1–2 years after follow-up (Vliegen, Casalin,&Luyten, 2014). In addition, rates of maternal suicide peak at 6 –9 months postpartum (Mangla, Hoffman, Trumpff, O'Grady,&Monk, 2019; Metz et  al., 2016).

Maternal mortality related to these conditions is significant, with maternal suicide and overdose-related death peaking between 7 and 12 months postpartum. Geographic challenges in accessing perinatal mental health experts can...

This role is also packed full of societal expectations and emotional milestones for an individual to navigate.  From the moment the pregnancy test confirms impending birth, an individual begins to conjure expectations they have of their own for this experience as well as what significant others, family members, friends, and society will hold for this new mother. While becoming a mother can be one of the most joyful and fulfilling passages of a wo...
