Welcome to the study on Preventing Perinatal Depression (PRE-D): Developing Tools and Interventions. We appreciate your interest in this project and look forward to helping you determine if participation is right for you.
Our study aims to assist women who are attempting to get pregnant, or in any stage of pregnancy, and have been depressed in the past.
We are conducting this study because women with a history of depression have an increased chance of getting depressed again, particularly during pregnancy. Women need useful and convenient ways to detect, monitor, and prevent depressive symptoms as they try to get pregnant, during pregnancy, and after the baby is born.
To help address these needs, we have developed a new Clinician Assisted Internet Monitoring (C-AIM) system to help women recognize the symptoms of depression.
