Abstract
A Spanish translation of this publication is available to download under "Additional Files" below. Despite the availability of effective evidence-based treatmentsand frequent contact with OB/Gyn providers, perinatal depression remains under-diagnosed and under-treated. Understanding the perceptions of women who have experienced perinatal depression may inform needed changes in screening, assessment, treatment, and prevention.
