How bad will my postpartum depression be in 12 months?
(Northwestern University) A new Northwestern Medicine study was able to successfully predict -- with 72.8 percent accuracy -- if a new mother would experience worsening depressive symptoms over the first year after giving birth. The scientists predicted this depression trajectory using four maternal characteristics that put the mother at risk. Identifying these factors early in the postpartum period will allow mothers to seek treatment earlier and improve their chance of a full recovery. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)
