  • Prenatal maternal personality as an early predictor of vulnerable
           parenting style
    • Abstract: Perinatal mental health problems, particularly depression, are prevalent and have been a central focus of prevention initiatives. The greater proportion of ongoing annual perinatal mental health economic cost burdens relate to children. A key linking mechanism is mother-infant relationship quality. Perinatal depression symptoms are typically transient. However, personality style, including interpersonal sensitivity, is a more stable construct and predicts proneness to depression and common mental disorders. Building on our previous work, the objective of the present study is to examine the association between specific dimensions of prenatal interpersonal sensitivity and postpartum mother-infant relationship quality in the context of prenatal depression symptoms. We analysed data from the Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children (ALSPAC). Interpersonal sensitivity and depression symptoms were measured at 18 weeks gestation. In a randomly selected 10% subsample of the ALSPAC cohort, mother-infant interaction was measured through standard observation at 12 months postpartum. For the subsample that had complete data at all time points (n = 812), multiple regression models examined prenatal interpersonal sensitivity dimensions predicting postpartum mother-infant relationship quality, accounting for depression symptoms. Two dimensions of maternal interpersonal sensitivity modestly predicted mother-infant relationship quality at 12 months postpartum and remained robust when we controlled for depression symptoms. The interpersonal sensitivity subscales were significantly associated with prenatal depression symptoms but more consistently and robustly predicted postnatal mother-infant interaction quality. The inclusion of personality measures may strengthen prenatal mental health assessment to identify vulnerability to suboptimal mother-infant relationship quality.

  • Managing fibromyalgia syndrome in pregnancy no bridges between USA and EU
    • Abstract: The first aim of this article is to analyze the risk/benefit ratio of using psychotropic drugs approved in some countries for treating fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) during pregnancy. Assessing the effectiveness of non-pharmacological interventions is the second scope of this article, in order to help clinicians to manage FMS in pregnancy in those countries were no drugs are approved for treating the disease. Following the PRISMA guidelines for systematic reviews, a literature search was conducted on PubMed and Google Scholar. Separate literature searches were performed for the three psychotropic drugs approved in the USA for treating FMS, psychotherapy, and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). Perinatal duloxetine exposure is associated with increased risk of gestational and perinatal complications. With regards pregabalin, available information suggests that the drug is not devoid of structural teratogenicity potential. No data are available for milnacipran. Duloxetine and pregabalin should be only given to pregnant women diagnosed with severe forms of FMS after carefully weighing the benefits and risks for the mother-fetus dyad. On the other hand, we have to consider that the proportion of women who discontinue psychotropic drugs during pregnancy is as high as 85.4%. This figure raises further questions about adequate alternative treatment of FMS during the perinatal period. Moreover, neither duloxetine nor milnacipran or pregabalin have been approved by the EMEA for the treatment of FMS. Unfortunately, psychological treatment of FMS in perinatal women are not yet tested and data on TMS are conflicting.

  • The effect of maternal antidepressants on third trimester uteroplacental
           hemodynamics and the neonatal abstinence syndrome: a retrospective cohort
    • Abstract: The objective of this study is to determine whether maternal antidepressant use during pregnancy influences uteroplacental hemodynamics, thereby affecting fetal growth and gestational age at delivery. The secondary aim was to determine the incidence of neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS) among infants exposed to antidepressant medications. The charts of women who received obstetrical care and had a history of depression from January 2014 to December 2016 at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto, Canada, were reviewed. Exclusion criteria were substance abuse; narcotic or lithium use at the time of delivery. In total, 205 women met the inclusion criteria (92 took antidepressants; 113 women did not). There were no significant differences in umbilical artery pulsatility index (PI), gestational age at delivery, or birth weight when comparing women based on antidepressant use. A small proportion (18%) of neonates had mild withdrawal symptoms; one baby had a score (≥ 8) consistent with severe NAS. In women with a history of depression, there was no difference in uteroplacental hemodynamics as measured by third trimester Doppler ultrasonography when comparing women who took antidepressant medication versus those who did not. The large majority of babies who were exposed to antidepressants in utero did not show withdrawal symptoms. These results lend support for the relative safety of antidepressants during pregnancy.

  • Psychological treatments for depression among women experiencing intimate
           partner violence: findings from a randomized controlled trial for
           behavioral activation in Goa, India
    • Abstract: Intimate partner violence (IPV) strongly predicts depression, but it is unknown if women experiencing IPV can benefit from depression treatments in contexts where depression and IPV are prevalent. This study explored whether women experiencing IPV in Goa, India, can benefit from the Healthy Activity Program (HAP), a culturally adapted behavioral activation treatment, compared with enhanced usual care (EUC). Cross-sectional and longitudinal analyses were performed on data from a clinical trial. Measures assessed at baseline and 3 and 12 months included depressive symptoms. Measures assessed at 3 and 12 months included activation and IPV. Independent t tests were conducted to assess if participants experiencing IPV had higher depressive symptoms and lower activation at 3 and 12 months; hierarchical linear regression was conducted to determine if 3-month IPV predicted 12-month depressive symptoms across trial arms (Hypothesis 1). Hierarchical linear regression was then conducted to examine if the relationship between 3-month activation and 12-month depressive symptoms was moderated by 3-month IPV within each trial arm (Hypothesis 2). As expected, participants experiencing IPV had significantly lower activation levels and higher depressive symptoms compared with participants who did not experience IPV at 3 and 12 months in cross-sectional analyses. Similarly, IPV endorsed at 3 months significantly predicted depressive symptoms at 12 months. However, activation was significantly associated with less severe depressive symptoms at 12 months, irrespective of IPV endorsement among HAP participants. For EUC participants, IPV remained the only significant predictor of depressive symptoms at 12 months. Results suggest that women experiencing IPV can still benefit from behavioral activation.

    • Abstract: Perinatal anxiety and depression are common and associated with negative outcomes if left untreated. Internet-delivered treatments can improve treatment accessibility and have demonstrated effectiveness in treating anxiety and depression in the general adult population. However, little is known about how effective and acceptable these interventions are for perinatal women. This paper describes a systematic review and preliminary meta-analysis of internet-delivered psychological interventions for the treatment of clinical anxiety and depression in perinatal women. A systematic search was carried out of seven electronic databases. Seven studies evaluating six distinct internet-delivered psychological interventions were identified. Of the seven studies included, two were open trials and five were randomized controlled trials with a total of 595 participants. Preliminary findings indicate large improvements in depression (Hedges g = 1.67; 95% CI 1.38–1.96) and anxiety (Hedges g = 1.08; 95% CI 0.80–1.36) from pre- to post-treatment. However, between-group differences between interventions and control conditions were only moderate for depression (Hedges g = 0.60; 95% CI 0.43–0.78) and anxiety (Hedges g = 0.54; 95% CI 0.24–0.85). While our preliminary findings are promising, this review identifies an area of research still in its early stages with significant gaps in the literature that need to be addressed. Further research is needed to establish the efficacy and acceptability of these interventions in this population, especially for antenatal depression and anxiety disorders.

  • Prevalence of intimate partner violence victimization and its association
           with mental disorders in the Korean general population
    • Abstract: This study assessed the association between experiencing physical or sexual intimate partner violence (IPV) and mental health among women in the general Korean population. A total of 3160 South Korean women aged 18 to 74 responded to the Korean version of the WHO-Composite International Diagnostic Interview (K-CIDI), version 2.1., and questions about IPV. Multiple logistic regression was used to examine the odds of developing mental disorders associated with each type of IPV. Victimization by any type of IPV was associated with significantly increased odds of experiencing any mental disorders in the lifetime (OR 4.4, 95% CI 2.4–8.0). Participants who experienced sexual IPV had the highest odds of having mental disorders (OR 14.3, 95% CI 4.1–54.8). Sexual IPV experience among participants was associated with higher odds of major depressive disorder, anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, specific phobias, agoraphobia, and nicotine dependence. Alcohol use disorder was highly associated with experiencing physical IPV (OR 3.8, 95% CI 1.7–8.0). Among women who experienced IPV, the youngest age group, from 18 to 35 years old (2.6%, 95% CI 1.4–3.8), and the never married group (2.7%, 95% CI 1.2–4.2) experienced the highest proportion of any form of IPV. Mental disorders throughout the lifetime are highly associated with the experience of IPV among women and are most prevalent among those who experienced sexual IPV. Thus, to prevent mental disorders among female IPV victims, treatment specific to each type of IPV should be provided early.

  • Psychosocial distress among women following a natural disaster in a low-
           to middle-income country: “healthy mothers, healthy communities” study
           in Vanuatu
    • Abstract: Natural disasters have major consequences for mental health in low- and middle-income countries. Symptoms are often more pronounced among women. We analyzed patterns and predictors of distress among pregnant and non-pregnant women 3–4 and 15–16 months after a cyclone in Vanuatu, a low- to middle-income country. Distress levels were high among both pregnant and non-pregnant women, although pregnant women showed lower longer-term symptoms. Low dietary diversity predicted greater distress, which could affect women even in villages with little cyclone damage.

  • Association of menstruation cycle with completed suicide: a hospital-based
           case-control study
    • Abstract: The purpose of the study was to determine the phases of the menstrual cycle in the reproductive age group of females who committed suicide as compared with a control group of females who died from causes other than suicide. The study included 86 cases in the suicidal group and 80 cases in the non-suicidal group. The menstrual phase was decided by the gross and histological examination of the uterus and ovary at autopsy. Deaths were more common during the secretory phase (56.9%) in the suicidal group, while in the non-suicidal group, death occurred more commonly in the proliferative phase (66.3%). In reference to proliferative phase, deaths were more in the secretory phase and menstrual phase in the suicidal group, adjusted odd’s ratio (OR) being 3.7 (p = 0.042) and 4.7 (p = 0.032), respectively. Corpus luteum was present in the right ovary of 43 and 14 victims of suicidal and non-suicidal deaths, respectively, while it was in the left ovary of 3 and 11 victims of suicidal and non-suicidal death, respectively. Odd’s ratio was 10.3 for corpus luteum to be in the right ovary in comparison with the left ovary for the suicidal group (p = 0.001). This study revealed that suicidal chances in a woman are significantly more in the menstrual phase and the secretory phase of the menstrual cycle. The presence of corpus luteum in the right ovary is associated with an increased risk of suicide, but the reason is not known.

  • Psychological interventions for endometriosis-related symptoms: a
           systematic review with narrative data synthesis
    • Abstract: Endometriosis impacts the physical, psychological and quality of life domains of women. Despite the medical and/or surgical management of endometriosis, the presence of persistent pelvic pain and psychological distress often continues, suggesting a role for psychological interventions in treatment planning. The present study aimed to conduct the first systematic review, with narrative data synthesis, on psychological interventions for endometriosis-related symptoms. The study also aimed to determine the effectiveness of current interventions in resolving psychological and pain-related loss of function associated with endometriosis and to identify gaps in the literature requiring further research. A total of 15,816 studies were retrieved through database searching and handsearching, with two researchers identifying 11 full-text studies that met inclusion criteria. Three studies of ‘moderate’ quality were identified, although the overall quality of studies was found to be ‘weak’, with a ‘high’ risk of bias. The findings regarding the effectiveness of psychological interventions for endometriosis-related symptoms remain inconclusive. Further research into psychological interventions for women with endometriosis that employ evidence-based protocols with high intervention integrity is recommended.

  • Delivery mode is associated with maternal mental health following
    • Abstract: Childbirth is a life-transforming event often followed by a time of heightened psychological vulnerability in the mother. There is a growing recognition of the importance of obstetrics aspects in maternal well-being with the way of labor potentially influencing psychological adjustment following parturition or failure thereof. Empirical scrutiny on the association between mode of delivery and postpartum well-being remains limited. We studied 685 women who were on average 3 months following childbirth and collected information concerning mode of delivery and pre- and postpartum mental health. Analysis of variance revealed that women who had cesarean section or vaginal instrumental delivery had higher somatization, obsessive compulsive, depression, and anxiety symptom levels than those who had natural or vaginal delivery as well as overall general distress, controlling for premorbid mental health, maternal age, education, primiparity, and medical complication in newborn. Women who underwent unplanned cesarean also had higher levels of childbirth-related PTSD symptoms excluding those with vaginal instrumental. The risk for endorsing psychiatric symptoms reflecting clinically relevant cases increased by twofold following unplanned cesarean and was threefold for probable childbirth-related PTSD. Maternal well-being following childbirth is associated with the experienced mode of delivery. Increasing awareness in routine care of the implications of operative delivery and obstetric interventions in delivery on a woman’s mental health is needed. Screening at-risk women could improve the quality of care and prevent enduring symptoms. Research is warranted on the psychological and biological factors implicated in the mode of delivery and their role in postpartum adjustment.

  • Maternal and child delivery charges, postpartum charges, and utilization
           of care among women with bipolar disorder: a cohort study
    • Abstract: Bipolar disorder (BD) during pregnancy is known to be a morbid condition associated with poor outcomes for both the mother and her infant. We aimed to determine if women with BD and their children have higher charges and health service utilization than mother-infant dyads with and without other mental health (MH) diagnoses. The International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision (ICD9) codes were used to identify mutually exclusive groups of women who gave birth between January 1, 2011, and December 31, 2012, coding first for BD, then diagnoses that comprised an “other MH diagnoses group” that included post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, and depression. Health service utilization and related charges were obtained for the dyad for delivery and for 2 years post-delivery at a single tertiary care center. Analyses included 4440 dyads. A BD diagnosis occurred in 1.8% of medical record codes, other MH diagnoses in 10%, and no known MH diagnosis in 88%. Compared with women with both other MH and no known MH diagnoses, women with BD had higher delivery charges (p < 0.001), higher cumulative charges in the 2 years postpartum (p < 0.001), higher preterm birth and low birthweight rates (15.5% v. 6.9% and 20.8% v. 6.4%, p < 0.001, BD v. no known MH, respectively), and greater utilization of inpatient and emergency psychiatric care services (p < 0.001). Compared with women with and without other mental health diagnoses, women with BD have the highest care utilization and charges. They also have higher preterm birth and low birthweight infant rates, two clinically relevant predictors of long-term health for the child. Given the low prevalence of BD and severity of the disease versus the magnitude of systems costs, women with BD, and their children, deserve the heightened attention afforded to other high-risk perinatal conditions.

  • Transcranial magnetic stimulation in the treatment of depression during
           pregnancy: a review
    • Abstract: The aim of this study is to elucidate the role of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) for treating depression during pregnancy. The treatment of depression in pregnant women poses a number of therapeutic challenges. Psychotherapy can be beneficial but is associated with limited availability and possibly an onset of effect which may be too long to be acceptable. Pharmacotherapy is limited by concerns of fetotoxicity, both real and possibly exaggerated in the view of patients and caregivers alike. While efficacy and safety of rTMS are well established for the treatment of depression, the available data for use in pregnancy is still sparse. We reviewed the available literature on the topic on PubMed. In addition to a number of case reports, three studies concerning the treatment of depressed pregnant women with rTMS are available. According to the data, rTMS seems to be safe for both the pregnant woman and her unborn offspring. No obstetric complications or adverse postnatal effects on development have been reported. rTMS alleviated depressive symptoms better than sham treatment in one study. rTMS seems to be safe and effective in treating depression in pregnant women. Further studies with larger numbers of participants are warranted to further clarify the significance of rTMS for the treatment of depression in pregnancy.

  • Beyond postpartum depression: posttraumatic stress-depressive response
           following childbirth
    • Abstract: Although depression following childbirth is well recognized, much less is known about comorbid postpartum psychiatric conditions. Some women can endorse posttraumatic stress related to the childbirth experience accompanied by symptoms of depression. The objective of our study was to examine the nature of the comorbidity of symptoms of childbirth-related posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and postpartum depression. We studied a sample of 685 women who were on average 3 months following childbirth and collected data about their mental health pertaining to PTSD, depression, general distress, and childbirth experience. The vast majority of women with elevated childbirth-related PTSD symptoms also endorsed elevated postpartum depression symptoms. Factor analysis revealed that symptoms of childbirth-related PTSD and postpartum depression loaded onto one single factor rather than two factors. Stepwise multi-nominal regression analysis revealed that childbirth stressors, including obstetric complications and peritraumatic distress in birth, predicted the likelihood of developing comorbid childbirth-related PTSD and postpartum depression, but not depression alone. The findings suggest that beyond postpartum depression, postpartum women suffer from a posttraumatic stress-depressive response in the wake of a traumatic childbirth experience. Increasing awareness in routine postpartum care about traumatic childbirth and its associated emotional sequela is warranted.

  • Symptomatology and quality of life between two populations of climacteric
    • Abstract: Purpose The aim of this study is to compare climacteric symptomatology and sociodemographic conditions and their effect on quality of life in two populations: Monterrey (Mexico) and Madrid (Spain). Methods  469 women from Monterrey (mean age 50.5 + 4.3 years) and 452 (mean age 51.7 + 3.7 years) from Madrid participated in the study. Descriptive analyses of sociodemographic and clinics characteristics of the sample were performed. A cross-sectional design and a regression analysis were performed to establish the sociodemographic and clinical variables that would be used as predictors of quality of life. Data was collected using the Menopause-Specific Quality of Life, MENQOL, the Menopause Rating Scale (MRS), the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS), the Quality of Life Scale for Women Aged From 45 to 64 (QLS), and a sociodemographic and clinical interview designed ad hoc. Results Approximately 60% of both Spanish and Mexican women present symptoms during climacteric that impairs their quality of life. Spanish women suffer more intense symptoms and for a longer period of time than Mexican women, with the exception of anxiety. Mexican women report better quality of life than Spanish women and it is moderated by educational, socioeconomical, and marital status. Women’s knowledge about menopause is also related to a better quality of life. Conclusions Our study confirms the differences in climacteric symptomatology between populations and the impact of educational level and knowledge about menopause as predictors of a better quality of life in climacteric women.

  • A meta-synthesis of women’s experiences of online forums for maternal
           mental illness and stigma
    • Abstract: Perinatal mental illness affects 15% of women; however, only half of these women access treatment. Some women with untreated perinatal mental illness may continue to suffer with mental illness after the perinatal period. Evidence suggests that one barrier to accessing treatment is stigma. Forums may provide an acceptable place for women to converse about the stigmatised symptoms of maternal mental illness. Reducing stigma may increase treatment uptake. This study aimed to review and synthesise the qualitative research on maternal mental illness forums and stigma so that stigma can be addressed and treatment improved. A meta-synthesis was conducted to describe and interpret qualitative studies regarding forum use and maternal mental illness stigma. A systematic search of seven electronic databases and Google Scholar was performed. Additional references were collected through screening references of the identified studies. Five studies were identified that reported women’s experiences of online forums for maternal mental illness and stigma. The synthesis identified four key themes: (1) a safe place to talk; (2) virtual support; (3) stigma and identity; and (4) repair of the mother identity. Stigma maybe reduced by forum discourse that reconceptualises what is to be a “good mother” and separates stigma and maternal identity. This synthesis provides a novel and more detailed framework for the stigma of maternal mental illness and forum use. This suggests forums may enable women to explore their dual identity and repair their maternal identity, and this may reduce stigma. Healthcare providers could discuss forum use with their clients.

  • The relationship between conformity to male and female gender norms and
           depression during pregnancy
    • Abstract: To analyze whether there is an association between conformity to male and female gender norms and the Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale (EPDS) score as an indicator of depression during pregnancy, a cross-sectional study was made to a sample of 200 pregnant women being seen at any of the public primary care centers in Segovia (Spain) for the prenatal care. A score of 13 points or higher on the Spanish version of the EPDS is considered to be an indicator of antenatal depression. The Conformity to Feminine Norms Inventory (CFNI-84) and the Conformity to Masculine Norms Inventory (CMNI-94) were used to determine the degree of conformity to gender norms. Descriptive and inferential statistics, as well as multivariate analysis, were carried out. Logistic regression analysis showed the Nice in Relationships Subscale score to be associated with a decreased risk of depression (OR = 0.88; 95%CI 0.79–0.98; p = 0.029). In addition, the CMNI total score, as well as the Self-Reliance subscale, were associated with an increased risk of depression (OR = 1.04; 95%CI 1.01–1.07; p = 0.022; OR = 1.30; 95%CI 1.08–1.55; p = 0.004, respectively). An association between conformity to male gender norms and nonconformity to some female gender norms in pregnant women and a score on the EPDS indicating depression during pregnancy was found. Particularly, an increase in the CMNI total score was associated to increased risk of suffering depression in the pregnant women studied.

  • The current status of gender-sensitive mental health services for
           women—findings from a global survey of experts
    • Abstract: Integrating gender in all aspects of health services is important and mental health is no exception. Despite several recommendations regarding the need for gender-sensitive mental health services, the actual availability of these is not clear, both in high and low-income countries. We sought to understand what aspects of gender-sensitive mental health care were considered a priority by global experts in women’s mental health and how satisfied they were with the current availability of these services in their own place of work. A survey with 43 items under 7 domains of gender-sensitive mental health care for women was sent to 150 experts in women’s mental health across the world, of whom 73 responded. Rating on each item was from 0 to 5. While majority of the experts rated most of the items as being very important (median score of 4 and above), some areas that were considered most important included training of mental health professionals in gender sensitivity, having private spaces for examination, using a life course approach to service planning and delivery, and assisting women who find it difficult to navigate the system and mother-baby units. However, satisfaction rates with available services were quite low overall and much lower among experts in low-income countries compared with those from high-income countries. Even in high-income countries, only 6 of the top 20 items were scored as satisfactory by at least 50% of experts. This expert survey method to arrive at consensus on top priorities for improving delivery of gender-sensitive mental health care indicates that at least 72% of the items provided in the survey were considered extremely important. Poor satisfaction of experts in both high- and low-income countries with availability of gender-sensitive services indicates the need for local and global strategic action and multilevel stakeholder engagement.
