Arch Womens Ment Health 2019 Feb 4. Epub 2019 Feb 4.

Department Neurosciences, Biomedicine and Movement Sciences, University of Verona, Verona, Italy.

Most studies on gender and psychosis have focused on gender differences at illness onset or on the long-term outcome, whereas little is known about the impact of gender on the first years after psychosis onset. A total of 185 first episode psychosis (FEP) patients were followed for 5 years after psychosis onset, and gender differences were explored in psychopathology (PANSS), needs for care (CAN), and insight (SAI-E). Male patients showed more negative symptoms than females over time, whereas female patients showed higher levels of depressive symptoms than males throughout the study period. Read More

Centre for Longitudinal and Life Course Research, School of Public Health, The University of Queensland, Herston, Queensland, 4006, Australia.

Maternal depression is a potent risk factor for poor child development across a number of domains but the mechanisms of transmission are poorly understood. This study aimed to test competing mediators of the association between pre-conception maternal depression and child psychosocial functioning. In 2016, mothers in the 1973-1978 cohort of the Australian Longitudinal Study on Women's Health were asked to be part of the Mothers and their Children's Health study and to complete surveys on the health of their three youngest children under 13 years.

Public Health, Department of Social Medicine, Osaka University Graduate School of Medicine, Yamadaoka 2-2, Suita, Osaka, 565-0871, Japan.

Pregnancy intention is reported to be associated with the risk of postpartum depression (PPD), but the impact of feelings toward being pregnant on PPD is unknown. We aimed to examine whether feelings toward being pregnant are associated with PPD at 1 month after childbirth. In our nationwide study between 2011 and 2014 in Japan, we used multivariate logistic regression analyses to examine the associations between pregnancy intention and feelings toward being pregnant with PPD [Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale (EPDS score > 9 or > 12)] among Japanese women.

The maternal reward system in postpartum depression.

Arch Womens Ment Health 2018 Dec 15. Epub 2018 Dec 15.

Department of Psychology, The Ohio State University, 1835 Neil Avenue, Columbus, OH, USA.

The experience of motherhood is most often emotionally positive and rewarding, but for many new mothers suffering from postpartum depression (PPD), this is not the case. Preclinical and clinical research has sought to uncover brain changes underlying PPD in order to gain a better understanding of how this disorder develops. This review focuses on the mesolimbic dopamine system, particularly the ventral tegmental area-nucleus accumbens pathway which has been implicated in the regulation of critical functions disrupted in PPD including mood, motivation, and mothering.

Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor effects on neural biomarkers of perinatal depression.

Arch Womens Ment Health 2018 Dec 1. Epub 2018 Dec 1.

Department of Pediatrics, BC Children's Hospital, The University of British Columbia, 4480 Oak Street, Vancouver, BC, V6H 3V4, Canada.

The effect of perinatal selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) on brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) and S100 calcium binding protein B (S100B) has not been investigated. Using a cohort of 86 pregnant women, we found that SSRIs significantly increase BDNF levels in late pregnancy and that S100B, but not BDNF, is associated with maternal depression in SSRI-treated women only. This shows that serum S100B could be a unique biomarker to determine efficacy of SSRIs during gestation. Read More

Foetal abuse.

Department of Paediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, Medical University of Vienna, Währinger Gürtel 18-20, 1090, Vienna, Austria.

Pregnancy and motherhood are often presented as natural and unproblematic for women. The fact that there are some women who engage in violent behaviour towards their unborn child suggests that motherhood is not as unproblematic as we are led to believe. This paper presents six previously unpublished cases of foetal abuse that is physical assaults on the foetus by the mothers themselves, and examines how the prevailing myth of the good mother might be further endangering mothers and their unborn children.

Department of Psychology, University of Milano-Bicocca, Piazza dell'Ateneo Nuovo, 1, 20126, Milan, Italy.

While there have been studies on the effects of maternal depression and anxiety on mother-infant styles of interaction in infancy, there have been no studies on the effects of paternal depression and anxiety or on the joint effects of maternal and paternal depression and anxiety on mother-infant styles of interaction. The aims of the study were to examine the associations between maternal depression and anxiety and paternal depression and anxiety and to examine the relationship between maternal and paternal depression and anxiety and mother-infant styles of interaction at infant 3 months. Seventy mother and father couples were administered the EPDS for depression and the STAI-Y for anxiety and mother-infant interactions were video-recorded and coded with the CARE-INDEX. Read More

Severe maternal morbidity and postpartum mental health-related outcomes in Sweden: a population-based matched-cohort study.

Arch Womens Ment Health 2018 Oct 17. Epub 2018 Oct 17.

Department of Public Health Sciences, Stockholms Universitet, 106 91, Stockholm, Sweden.

We examined whether women experiencing severe maternal morbidity (SMM) are more likely to be treated for a psychiatric illness or be prescribed psychotropic medications in the postpartum year than mothers who did not experience SMM. We also examine the relationship between SMM and specific mental health-related outcomes, and the relationship between specific SMM diagnoses/procedures and postpartum mental-health-related outcomes. The national registers in Sweden were used to create a population-based matched cohort. Read More

Arch Womens Ment Health 2018 Oct 15. Epub 2018 Oct 15.

Faculty of Psychology, University of Valencia, Valencia, Spain.

Ultrasound is a common medical care procedure during pregnancy which has psychological implications. Research has found that it reduces the mother's level of anxiety, but there is not enough literature on the effects of the ultrasound in relation to the trimester it is done (first, second, and third) and the effects on the psychosocial adaptation to pregnancy. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of the ultrasound in the first, second, and third trimester on anxiety and variables related to psychosocial adaptation to pregnancy.

The effects of intrapartum synthetic oxytocin on maternal postpartum mood: findings from a prospective observational study.

Arch Womens Ment Health 2018 Oct 10. Epub 2018 Oct 10.

Department of Zoology, Faculty of Science, Charles University, Viničná 7, 128 43, Prague, Czech Republic.

Postpartum depression (PPD) affects up to 19% of all mothers, with detrimental effects on both mother and child. The antidepressant and anxiolytic effects of plasma oxytocin are well-documented, but it is still disputable whether synthetic oxytocin (synOT) may protect women against postpartum mood alterations. The current study examined the association between synOT intrapartum and maternal mood postpartum using a prospective design. Read More

Impact of a prenatal episode and diagnosis in women with serious mental illnesses on neonatal complications (prematurity, low birth weight, and hospitalization in neonatal intensive care units).

Arch Womens Ment Health 2018 Oct 5. Epub 2018 Oct 5.

Department of Psychiatry, Assistance Publique-Hôpitaux de Paris, Bicêtre University Hospital, 78 rue du Général Leclerc, 94275, Le Kremlin Bicêtre, France.

Pregnancy in women with mental disorders is increasingly common. The aim of this study was to determine, in women with severe mental illnesses, whether a prenatal episode was related to neonatal complications and if a specific disorder was associated with a higher risk. A population of infants and their mothers (n = 1439) jointly admitted to psychiatric Mother-Baby Units in France and Belgium (2001-2010) was assessed respectively for prematurity, low birth weight (LBW), hospitalization in neonatal intensive care units (NICUs), and maternal mental health during pregnancy.
