    Abstract : Peripartum depression affects around 12% of women in pregnancy and postpartum, and about 2–3% of European pregnant women use antidepressants, mostly selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). An increased risk of poor pregnancy outcomes has been described in women with antenatal depression and SSRI treatment during pregnancy. READ MORE

  3. 3. Biomarkers for Peripartum Depression : Focusing on aspects of the immune system and the metabolome

    Abstract : During pregnancy, the basal activity is increased in both of our major stress response systems: the sympathetic nervous system and the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis. At the same time, the reactivity towards stressors is reduced. These alterations sustain maternal and fetal homeostasis, and are involved in the regulation of gestational length. READ MORE

  5. 5. Perinatal Complications: Associations with Postpartum depressive symptoms and Neuroticism

    Author : Patricia Eckerdal; Alkistis Skalkidou; Anna-Karin Wikström; Ulf Högberg; Linnea Karlsson; Christina Hultman; Uppsala universitet; []

    Abstract : Even though most pregnancies and deliveries are uncomplicated, still fifteen percent of all women in developed countries suffer pregnancy-related complications. The aim of this thesis was to explore the associations between perinatal complications and perinatal maternal health, with emphasis on postpartum depressive symptoms (PPDS) and neuroticism taking into account potential confounding or mediating factors such as history of depression, antenatal depressive symptoms and delivery experience.
