4. Antidepressants for preventing postnatal depression. (PubMed)

Antidepressants for preventing postnatal depression. BACKGROUND: Depression is common in the postnatal period and can lead to adverse effects on the infant and wider family, in addition to the morbidity for the mother. It is not clear whether antidepressants are effective for the prevention of postnatal depression and little is known about possible adverse effects for the mother and infant, particularly during breastfeeding. This is an update of a Cochrane Review last published in 2005 (...) . OBJECTIVES: To assess the effectiveness of antidepressant medication for the prevention of postnatal depression, in comparison with any other treatment, placebo or standard care. SEARCH METHODS: We searched the Cochrane Common Mental Disorders Controlled Trials Register (CCMDCTR ‒ both Studies and References), CENTRAL (Wiley), MEDLINE (OVID), Embase (OVID), PsycINFO (OVID), on 13 February 2018.

6. Paternal depression in the postnatal period and child development: a prospective population study. (PubMed)

Paternal depression in the postnatal period and child development: a prospective population study. BACKGROUND: Depression is common and frequently affects mothers and fathers of young children. Postnatal depression in mothers affects the quality of maternal care, and can lead to disturbances in their children's social, behavioural, cognitive, and physical development. However, the effect of depression in fathers during the early years of a child's life has received little attention. METHODS (...) : As part of a large, population-based study of childhood, we assessed the presence of depressive symptoms in mothers (n=13,351) and fathers (n=12,884) 8 weeks after the birth of their child with the Edinburgh postnatal depression scale (EPDS). Fathers were reassessed at 21 months. We identified any subsequent development of behavioural and emotional problems in their children (n=10,024) at age 3.5 years with maternal reports on the Rutter revised preschool scales.

13. Dietary supplements for preventing postnatal depression. (PubMed)

Dietary supplements for preventing postnatal depression. BACKGROUND: Postnatal depression is a medical condition that affects many women and the development of their infants. There is a lack of evidence for treatment and prevention strategies that are safe for mothers and infants. Certain dietary deficiencies in a pregnant or postnatal woman's diet may cause postnatal depression. By correcting these deficiencies postnatal depression could be prevented in some women. Specific examples of dietary (...) supplements aimed at preventing postnatal depression include: omega-3 fatty acids, iron, folate, s-adenosyl-L-methionine, cobalamin, pyridoxine, riboflavin, vitamin D and calcium. OBJECTIVES: To assess the benefits of dietary supplements for preventing postnatal depression either in the antenatal period, postnatal period, or both.

Depression - antenatal and postnatal Depression - antenatal and postnatal - NICE CKS Clinical Knowledge Summaries Share Depression - antenatal and postnatal - Summary Depression refers to a range of mental conditions characterized by persistent low mood, absence of positive affect, and a range of associated emotional, cognitive, physical, and behavioural symptoms. Women who are pregnant or postnatal can develop or have the same mental health problems as other adults. Depression in the postnatal (...) period can occur at any time within a year after birth. Common misconceptions about depression in the postnatal period are that symptoms and effects are less severe than depression at other times, it will go away by itself, and that it is entirely due to hormonal changes. The possibility of depression should be assessed at a pregnant woman's first contact with primary care, at her booking visit, and postnatally (usually at 4–6 weeks and 3–4 months).

Should methodological filters for diagnostic test accuracy studies be used in systematic reviews of psychometric instruments? A case study involving screening for postnatal depression. BACKGROUND: Challenges exist when searching for diagnostic test accuracy (DTA) studies that include the design of DTA search strategies and selection of appropriate filters. This paper compares the performance of three MEDLINE search strategies for psychometric diagnostic test accuracy (DTA) studies in postnatal (...) . It was considered the optimum method for retrieval of relevant studies for a psychometric DTA review (in this case for postnatal depression). Potential limitations of using filtered searches during a psychometric mental health DTA review should be considered.
