Why You Should Attend
Depression and other mood disorders occur in up to 15% of pregnancies and postpartum women. Perinatal mood disorders are the most common complication of pregnancy, and most often are undiagnosed and untreated. Untreated maternal mood disorders can have significant long-term negative consequences on the mother, fetus, infant, and family. These can include chronic maternal depression, low birth weight, premature birth, and family conflict.
