Abstract

While still heavily stigmatised and underreported by women to maternity services, it can be argued there is a rising understanding of the impact of postnatal depression in western societies. Although encouraging, there remains the difficulty of communicating to women, healthcare staff and researchers that many of the antecedents of these depressive symptoms manifest in the antenatal period or prior to conception.
