This systematic review searched 4 databases (PubMed/MEDLINE, Scopus, CINAHL, and PsychINFO) and identified 21 articles eligible to evaluate the extent to which interventions that integrate depression care into outpatient obstetric practice are feasible, effective, acceptable, and sustainable. Despite limitations among the available studies including marked heterogeneity, there is evidence supporting feasibility, effectiveness, and acceptability. In general, this is an emerging field with promise that requires additional research. Critical to its real-world success will be consideration for practice workflow and logistics, and sustainability through novel reimbursement mechanisms.
