1 In 8 New Mothers Experience Symptoms of Postpartum Depression

Did you know:

  • A CDC study shows that about 1 in 10 women in the United States reported symptoms of a major episode of depression in the last year.
  • About 1 in 8 women with a recent live birth experiences symptoms of postpartum depression.

With this information in mind, it is important to note that the well child visit is an opportunity for physicians to screen both the child and the mother to ensure the health and well-being of the family.

To provide a deeper understanding of this process, the Ohio AAP is hosting a free webinar, “Screening for Maternal Depression at the Well Child Visit: It’s a Family Affair” on January 24 at noon. This webinar is eligible for CME and MOC Part II credit.

This webinar, hosted by Dr. Lisbeth Lazaron of the University of Cincinnati will discuss both the process of screening and treatment for the mental health of a child’s mother as well as a very informative look at billing.
