  • Although most of the research and clinical attention has been on unipolar depression among antenatal and postnatal women, there is evidence that women with bipolar disorders are at increased risk of postnatal psychosis, and women who have depressive symptoms should be screened for bipolar disorder and monitored for elevated mood.

Differences in socioeconomic aspects account for about two-thirds (61%) of inequalities in skilled birth attendance, of which household wealth accounts for 24%, mother’s education 16% and living in rural areas 12%. 12 When examining the relationship between utilization patterns and offer of skilled care during delivery, women who did not receive valid antenatal care (at least four visits to a health professional during pregnancy) were more likely to deliver without professional care.

Two studies have been identified which looked at brief interventions in the antenatal setting.
