The role nutrition plays in maternal depression has been the subject of a variety of research. A new Alive & Thrive technical brief presents what we know about the role of nutrition in predicting, preventing, and improving maternal depression.

The brief also discusses interventions and platforms to address maternal depression within healthcare systems and identifies areas for future research and action in understanding nutrition’s impact on maternal depression and identification of preventative nutrition interventions.

“Maternal Depression: The potential role of nutrition in prevention and treatment” was written by Dr. Pamela Surkin and Farah Behbehani.
