Chronic physical conditions and risk for perinatal mental illness: A population-based retrospective cohort study.

08:00 EDT 26th August 2019 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Chronic physical conditions and risk for perinatal mental illness: A population-based retrospective cohort study."

One in 5 women experience mental illness in pregnancy or post partum. Universal preventive interventions have not lowered the incidence of perinatal mental illness, perhaps because those at highest risk were not targeted. Outside of pregnancy, chronic physical conditions are known to confer increased risk for mental illness. Our objective was to examine the association between chronic physical conditions and risk of perinatal mental illness.
