Perinatal depression is a common condition that was estimated in 2012 to affect more than 180,000 new mothers (11.5%) annually in the United States and that can have serious impact on mother and infant well-being. Numerous interventions have been proposed to prevent perinatal depression, but there is no commonly agreed-on prevention method, creating a scenario with substantial variation in clinical practice.
