STUDY: QUB study into maternal mental health
The study confirms existing research and recent findings by King’s College that one in four women will develop mental ill health in pregnancy.
23% of women who died between six weeks and one year after pregnancy died from mental health related issues.
Estimated 20%-25% suffer post natal depression in the western world.
70% of women admit they hide or downplay symptoms of mental illness but with early intervention there is an 80-90% recovery.
