This paper aims to provide a chronology of the events that led to and culminated in the publication of this book in the form of a systematic review and meta-analyses.


Relationship of prenatal depression and comorbidities to infant outcomes
This information may be used to assist prenatal care clinicians to develop risk assessment based on knowledge of multiple risk factors that may exert and additive influence on poor birth outcomes.
Antidepressant medication use, depression, and the risk of preeclampsia
Study findings suggest that antidepressant use during pregnancy may increase the risk of preeclampsia, especially use during the second trimester, especially for selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) use.
Antidepressant Treatment of Depression During Pregnancy and the Postpartum Period.
Evidence about the comparative benefits and harms of pharmacological treatment of depression in pregnant and postpartum women was largely inadequate to allow well-informed decisions about treatment and indicates that future research should focus on the comparative risk of congenital anomalies and neonatal motor developmental delays.
The role of reproductive hormones in postpartum depression
The hypothesis that fluctuations in reproductive hormone levels during pregnancy and the postpartum period trigger PPD in susceptible women is examined to propose that these women constitute a “hormone-sensitive” PPD phenotype, which should be studied independent of other PPD phenotypes to identify underlying pathophysiology and develop novel treatment targets.
Detection and treatment rates for perinatal depression in a state Medicaid population
