Maternal Mental Health
Fact Sheet, 2013
These fact sheets are intended as an information resource for healthcare providers or other individuals who would like further information on maternal depression. It is more detailed than the Information Card. On the back of the fact sheet is the Edinburgh Postpartum Depression Scale (EPDS), a depression screen that can be done with a woman or can be provided to a woman to complete on her own. The fact sheet can be referred to when discussing maternal depression with women and their families, or used to share information with your colleagues.
