Preventing postpartum depression: a global participant feedback analysis of the Mothers and Babies Internet Project

Investigator: Eleni Ramphos, MS
Sponsor: Global Health Sciences Education

Location(s): United States


Postpartum depression occurs in 10-15% of women worldwide, though many do not access care. A lack of access to care may be due to limited resource allocation to perinatal mental health, a lack of trained professionals in certain geographical areas, or poverty and cultural stigma, which may deter individuals from seeking care. The Mothers 26 | P a g e and Babies Internet Project, an online postpartum depression prevention program, was previously designed to address the unmet needs for available and accessible resources, particularly in low- and middle-income countries. We aimed to evaluate the feedback of those who had consented to the original Mothers and Babies Internet Project RCT to incorporate it into future versions of the intervention.
