Depression during and after pregnancy are the main cause of disease-related disability among women. Antenatal depression and postpartum depression are common, with a prevalence of 18% and 19%, respectively. Depressive symptoms during and after pregnancy are related with unfavourable outcomes for mothers and their newborns.
