54. Antidepressant prevention of postnatal depression.

Antidepressant prevention of postnatal depression. BACKGROUND: Postnatal depression is a common and important complication of childbearing. Untreated depression can lead to potentially negative effects on the foetus and infant, in addition to serious morbidity for the mother. The use of antidepressants during pregnancy for prevention of postnatal depression is unclear, due to the possibility of adverse effects on the mother and developing foetus, and the difficulty of reliably identifying (...) the women who would go on to develop postnatal depression. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the effectiveness of different antidepressant drugs in addition to standard clinical care in the prevention of postnatal depression. To compare the effectiveness of different antidepressant drugs and with any other form of intervention for postnatal depression i.e. hormonal, psychological or social support. To assess any adverse effects of antidepressant drugs in either the mother or the foetus/infant. SEARCH STRATEGY

55. Operative delivery and postnatal depression: a cohort study.

Operative delivery and postnatal depression: a cohort study. OBJECTIVES: To assess the association between elective caesarean section and postnatal depression compared with planned vaginal delivery and whether emergency caesarean section or assisted vaginal delivery is associated with postnatal depression compared with spontaneous vaginal delivery. DESIGN: Prospective population based cohort study. SETTING: ALSPAC (the Avon longitudinal study of parents and children). PARTICIPANTS: 14,663 women (...) recruited antenatally with a due date between 1 April 1991 and 31 December 1992. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE: Edinburgh postnatal depression scale score > or = 13 at eight weeks postnatal on self completed questionnaire. RESULTS: Albeit with wide confidence intervals, there was no evidence that elective caesarean section altered the odds of postnatal depression compared with planned vaginal delivery (adjusted odds ratio 1.06, 95% confidence interval 0.66 to 1.70, P = 0.80).
