Stay Alert for Depression During and After Pregnancy
You'll see more emphasis on identifying and managing perinatal depression...due to CDC's new "Hear Her" campaign.
This movement brings attention to warning signs for problems related to pregnancy...and perinatal depression will be one focus.
Up to 1 in 7 moms experience perinatal depression...depressive episodes during pregnancy or the 12 months after delivery. It's different than "baby blues"...which are common for a couple weeks postdelivery.
