Results: 201 pregnant ladies were evaluated for antenatal depression. Majority women (52.7%) belonged to the age group of 26-30 years. Using EPDS we found that 10.9% women were progressing towards antenatal depression. The risk of developing antenatal depression was statistically significant among the women (21.1%) who were married before 20 years of age (p= 0.027), who were multi-gravida (p=0.002) and who were facing pressure from inlaws (p<0.05).
