MCH Library: Depression During and After Pregnancy
The MCH Library presents a new knowledge path, Depression During and After Pregnancy. The knowledge path directs readers to a selection of current, high-quality resources about the prevalence and incidence of perinatal depression; identification and treatment; impact on the health and well-being of new mothers and their infants; and implications for service delivery. Health professionals, program administrators, policymakers, and researchers can use the knowledge path to learn more about depression during and after pregnancy, to integrate what they know into their work in new ways to improve care, for program development, and to locate training resources and information to answer specific questions.
View the knowledge path at http://www.mchlibrary.org/KnowledgePaths/kp_postpartum.html. A separate brief presents resources for women experiencing perinatal depression and their families and is available at http://www.mchlibrary.org/families/frb_postpartum.html.
