Perinatal depression is one of the most common pregnancy complications, affecting one in seven birthing people, and may contribute to adverse neonatal, infant, and child outcomes. Both the US Preventative Services Task Force and the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology recommend screening for depression and anxiety during pregnancy and the post-partum period, as well as initiating treatment or referring to mental health care providers for maximum benefit.1, Despite these recommendations, stigma around mental illness, lack of insurance coverage for behavioral health, and structural barriers all prevent access to quality mental health care.
