Mini Review Open Access


Approximately 18 million people are affected by depression, hence it can be considered as a significantly prevalent health disorder with noteworthy psychosocial impact. Pregnancy and postpartum duration are known for striking hormonal variations occurring in the body. Dysregulation in these endocrine axes (HPA) have a probable link to mood disorders. Approximately 10–15% of women are affected by depression at this juncture, impairing mother– infant interactions. Maternal attachment, sensitivity and parenting style are essential for a healthy maturation of an infant's cognitive and behavioral skills. A child on exposure to depressive symptoms has impaired social sense or security, reduced logical reasoning and is a high risk factor for future depression. It is imperative to uncover the mechanisms through which maternal depression contributes to numerous problems in children. Innumerous etiological issues play a role which is definitely modifiable. Efforts should be focused on isolating those factors which are causal in nature and diminish the outcome of this event. It is a growing concern for health practitioners and community worldwide as there is a massive impact on the children. Generally, a barrier to seek professional help in these situations is inability of the victim to reveal their symptoms for fear of ridicule often reinforced by society. Thus, observing the patients who come under the radar of depression and treating them appropriately at the precise time allow them to march toward a healthy life.
