According to the latest data, 1 in 7 US women experience perinatal depression, described as depression occurring during pregnancy and up to one year after childbirth.  There is compelling evidence that perinatal depression can have short and long-term effects on  both women and their children. The USPSTF has published new recommendations encouraging clinicians to screen pregnant and postpartum persons for depression and provide those who are at increased risk of perinatal depression with counseling interventions. (Grade B recommendation).
