Perinatal Depression Data * * Gaynes, Gavin, Meltzer-Brody, et al (2005) AHRQ Rate of depression, during pregnancy or within first 12 months after delivery (major & minor depression) = 5 to 25 % Perinatal depression is the leading cause of disease-related disability among women and negatively impacts women, their children and families.
Domestic Violence (DV) Statistics Nearly 1/3 of US women will be physically abused by a current or former partner sometime during their lives. Between % of pregnant women experience DV as compared to 7% with preeclampsia or gestational diabetes. (Gazmararian, 1996) Pregnant women are at twice the risk of battery; at four times the risk if the pregnancy is unplanned/unwanted. The leading cause of death among pregnant women is homicide.
Violence may involve other siblings, family or household members. Witnessing violence may perpetuate the cycle of violence into adulthood. Child abuse is associated with depression, substance abuse, poor school performance, and high-risk sexual activity. Potential Risk to Developing Child
