Briana Halloran | Postpartum depression and preconception vitamin supplementation: An analysis of the Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System (PRAMS), 2016-2018

Postpartum depression (PPD), a mood disorder with a relatively unknown cause, affects around 1 in 8 women in the United States. Micronutrient levels may contribute to the pathophysiology of mood disorders and depression. This analysis aimed to examine the relationship between the intake of preconception vitamin supplements and the development of PPD using the Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System (PRAMS). The results of this analysis will better prepare healthcare workers, including dietitians, to educate women during the preconception period on the benefits of vitamin supplementation.
