Happy Maternal Mental Health Day! As a therapist specializing in Maternal Mental Health, this is like my professional holiday. A day to celebrate how far we have come in recognizing, diagnosing, and treating mental health issues in the perinatal period, and a day to push forward in spreading the word about Maternal Mental Health and creating space for more outreach and inclusivity. So, to celebrate this day, I am going to write an article for you detailing the symptoms that can impact mothers in
Factors influencing maternal health services utilization operate at various levels - individual, household, community and state. Depending on the indicator of maternal health services, the relevant determinants vary. Effective interventions to promote maternal health service utilization should targe …
Responding to this need, the Foundation launched a four-year (June 2015- September 2019) maternal health quality of care (MHQoC) strategy in June 2015, which aims to catalyze another paradigm shift, this time in the maternal health arena within India-changing the focus from increasing access to maternal health services to improving the quality of these services. The MHQoC strategy marks the final stage of the Foundations grant-making to support PRH in India and seeks to build a foundation and momentum for further maternal health quality improvements after the Foundation exits the country. To this end, it includes three key sub-strategies: (1) strengthening the supply of quality maternal health services in both the public and private sectors, (2) building demand for quality services through accountability mechanisms, and (3) building evidence and supporting advocacy for quality maternal health services. To carry out the work of the strategy, the Foundation has funded 20 grantees through 28 ...

The effects of National Health Insurance Scheme in Ghana and its impact on child health outcome and service utilization cannot be underestimated. Despite the tremendous improvement in child health care in Ghana, there are still some challenges in relation to how National health insurance membership, socioeconomic status and other demographic factors impacts on child health outcomes. The study seeks to determine the association between NHIS membership, socio-economic status, geographic location and other relevant background factors, on child health service utilization and outcomes. Secondary data from the Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey conducted in 2011 was used. Multivariate analysis based on Binary Logistic Regression Models and Multiple linear regression techniques was applied to determine factors associated with child health outcomes and service utilization. Collection of best models was based on Hosmer-Lemeshow Goodness-Of-Fit as one criterion of fit and the Akaike Information Criterion.
Malaria and HIV are two of the most important Infectious diseases worldwide that are overlapping and synergistic in sub-Saharan Africa. Despite the scale up of front line prevention efforts, the burden of malaria remains staggering among pregnant women and children; and malnutrition and growth retardation are major threats to child health. The purpose of the Prevention of Malaria and HIV Disease in Tororo (PROMOTE) program project (POI) is to evaluate promising interventions to reduce the burden of malaria and HIV and Improve maternal-child health through hypothesis based intervention studies. PROMOTE II will test the hypotheses that a) enhanced malaria chemoprevention in HIV infected and uninfected pregnant women will reduce placenta malaria; b) enhanced chemoprevention provided during both pregnancy and childhood will reduce malaria in children in the first 2 years of life and c) limiting in utero exposure to malaria antigens with enhanced malaria chemoprevention during pregnancy will reduce ...

Following the call for papers and rigorous editorial and peer review, 18 articles were published from a wide range of authors and settings, including 14 original research articles and 4 policy and health in action ...
Maternal mortality is a huge concern globally leading to more than a quarter of a million deaths every year. Similarly, an estimated 4 million neonates die every year worldwide, contributing to the majority of deaths of under-5 children. The majority of these deaths take place in under-developed countries, and specifically, in the sub-Saharan Africa region. It is evidenced that maternal ill-health and death contribute to the majority of child deaths. Reducing the death of children under 5 years by two thirds and also improving maternal health/reducing maternal death by three quarters between the years 1990 and 2015 are two of the eight aims of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), MDG-4 and MDG-5 respectively. The report on maternal health services in Eritrea, a nation in the sub-Saharan Africa, shows a low utilization of antenatal care, family planning services, and postnatal care. Furthermore, there is insufficient use of skilled assistance at delivery. The purpose of this study was to explore the
Result: The results showed that 38.5 percent (154) of the women received antenatal care, 32.3 percent (129) of the women received delivery services while 48.3 percent (193) received postnatal care services. In the logistic regression model, reduced income level was associated with decreased use of antenatal care (OR=0.1, P,0.05). In assisted delivery, increased distance to the health facility was associated with reduced use (OR=0.1, P ,0.05). In postnatal care, reduced education level of the respondent was found to be associated to decreased use of postnatal services (OR=0.51, P,0.05). Increased maternal age was associated with increased utilization of maternal health services (OR=2.1, P,0.05). On the other hand, decision making roles by the male spouse alone or both partners was associated with increased use of postnatal services (OR=4.5,P,0.05 ...

As 2015 quickly approaches, the global health community has been made increasingly aware of our progress toward Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Some remarkable progress has indeed been made. For example, the proportion of underweight children under the age of five in developing countries has declined from 28% to 17% between 1990 and 2011. Significant progress has also been made in reducing mortality among children under the age of five. In 1990, 12 million children under five died, compared with 6.9 million children in 2011. In 2011, 2.5 million people were newly infected with HIV, representing a 24% decrease from the 3.1 million people newly infected in 2001. However, one millennium development goal has shown particularly slow progress: MDG 5, namely, improving maternal health. Few countries are on track to achieve the first part of MDG 5s goals, reducing maternal morality by 75%. Sub-Saharan Africa is in the most dire position, with a regional maternal mortality rate of 640 maternal ...

The health and wellbeing of women everywhere is of great importance in its own right. It is also key to the health and wellbeing of their families, communities and societies. But every year, over half a million women in developing countries die in pregnancy and childbirth. The Safe Motherhood Initiative was started in 1987 to improve maternity services and to protect the health of mothers and their infants.

Common symptoms of a potential emotional, behavioral, or developmental problem include poor grades in school, withdrawal from friends and family, and insomnia.
We investigate the effect of education Conditional Cash Transfer programs (CCTs) on teenage pregnancy. Our main concern is with how the size and sign of the effect may depend on the design of the program. Using a simple model we show that an education CCT that conditions renewal on school performance reduces teenage pregnancy; the program can increase teenage pregnancy if it does not condition on school performance. Then, using an original data base, we estimate the causal impact on teenage pregnancy of two education CCTs implemented in Bogot´a (Subsidio Educativo, SE, and Familias en Acci´on, FA); both programs differ particularly on whether school success is a condition for renewal or not. We show that SE has negative average effect on teenage pregnancy while FA has a null average effect. We also find that SE has either null or no effect for adolescents in all age and grade groups while FA has positive, null or negative effects for adolescents in different age and grade groups. Since SE ...
Many policymakers are interested in the role of conditions in cash transfer programs. Do they improve outcomes of interest more than money alone? Are there trade-offs? Is there a role for conditions for political rather than technocratic reasons? Its easy to extend the list of questions for a good while. However, before one can get to these questions, there is a much more basic question that needs to be answered (for any policymaker contemplating running one of these programs at any level):

Background: There is a lack of population-based studies on multiple births and maternal mental health. Having a high-risk pregnancy by bearing two or more children is a stressful life event, and the challenges of parenting two or more children probably also lead to a high level of parental stress. There are a few results on multiple births and maternal mental health from studies on in vitro fertilization samples. The only previous cohort study on multiple birth and maternal mental health included a single measure of depressive symptoms at 9 months postpartum. We aim to estimate the relative risk for depression and anxiety after multiple birth in a population-based prospective cohort study while adjusting for factors prior and subsequent to fertilization. Methods: We used data from 87,807 pregnancies included in the Norwegian Mother and Child Cohort study. Information on multiple birth was retrieved from the Norwegian Medical Birth Registry, and maternal mental health was assessed at 17th and ...
Objectives: Household conditions and culturally/socially variable childcare practices influence priming of the inflammatory response during infancy. Maternal mental health may partially mediate that effect. Among mother- infant dyads in Mwanza, Tanzania, we hypothesized that poorer maternal mental health would be associated with adverse household ecology, lower social capital, and greater inflammation among infants under the age of one; and that mental health would mediate any effects of household ecology/social capital on inflammation. Methods: We collected dried blood spots from mother-infant dyads (N588) at health centers near Mwanza, Tanzania. To assess household ecology and social capital, we conducted interviews with mothers using the Household Food Insecurity Access Scale, the MacArthur Subjective Social Status Scale, and a household wealth inventory. We employed the Hopkins Symptom Checklist to assess maternal mental health. A high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (CRP) assay was used to ...
Using a community sample of mothers and children in a major urban centre in Canada, this study described developmental problems at age 2 and identified protective factors for developmental problems in a subgroup of families with maternal mental health risk. Maternal mental health risk was common, affecting 27% of women in our sample, which is similar to previously reported rates of 25%.12. Poor sleep habits have previously been linked to poor child developmental outcomes including child behaviour problems,30 poorer learning capacity and academic performance.31 Our findings extend this research by identifying that good sleep habits may act as a protective factor for child social-emotional and behavioural development when mothers are experiencing poor mental health. It is hypothesised that having a child who sleeps well provides mothers, especially those with mental health concerns, with a reprieve from the demands of caring for a young child. Consequently, educating and providing parents with ...
Unplanned pregnancies account for approximately 49% of all pregnancies in the United States and this number has been stagnant for decades. To better understand the predictors of unplanned pregnancy, we examined whether various sociodemographic factors (race, age, education, marital status, income, car, and home ownership) in a Mid-Michigan cohort increased odds of a woman reporting an unplanned pregnancy. An additional objective was to determine if associations existed between maternal behavioral factors (depression, smoking, breast-feeding), child health outcomes (low birth weight and pre-term birth), and unplanned pregnancies. Data used in this study were from an ongoing data collection project entitled the Archive for Research and Child Health (ARCH). Associations were assessed with odds ratios and 95% confidence intervals with univariate and multivariate models. Unplanned pregnancies accounted for 62.9% of all pregnancies. Women who were non-white, younger, less educated, unmarried, low ...

While the federal and provincial governments have recently announced funding for mental health initiatives to support vulnerable groups, pregnant and postpartum women have been forgotten so far. World Maternal Mental Health Day went unacknowledged this month by both our prime minister and premier, while advocates highlighted that #NowMoreThanEver, a national perinatal mental health strategy, is needed to ensure universal screening and timely access to treatment.. Our leaders did remember to issue messages for Mothers Day a few days later, but mothers deserve more than praise for what they do for their families.

Stepfamilies remain poorly understood in Japanese society, and the support needs of stepfamily mothers are unclear. This study aimed to identify characteristics of stepfamilies and maternal mental health as compared with non-stepfamilies in Japan to utilize as a primary resource for providing effective support through community-based health care for stepfamilies. From December 2011 to July 2012, we conducted this questionnaire survey with mothers at 3- and 4-month checkups for infants. The response rate was 75.1%. The sample for analysis included responses of 2246 mothers, excluding single mothers. Respondents comprised 47 (2.1%) stepfamilies and 2199 (97.9%) non-stepfamilies. There were significantly higher rates of parents with not more than a high school education and ≥3 children among stepfamilies compared with non-stepfamilies. Stepfamily mothers had significantly higher rates of feeling a lack of economic resources, absence of participation in childbirth education classes, smoking during

Empowerment is a complex multidimensional concept that can be broadly defined as the ability of individuals or groups to improve capacities, to critically analyze situations and to take actions to improve those situations [1]. In sub-Saharan Africa, womens overall empowerment has been positively associated with the utilization of maternal health services [2], use of contraception [3-5], improved infant feeding practices [6], and reductions in infant mortality [7].. Given the positive associations between general empowerment and maternal-child health, it is important to consider womens empowerment as it relates to health and healthcare [8]. Health-related empowerment is a construct that was developed to examine ways that healthcare setting factors relate to clients perceived control over health-related decisions and behaviors [9, 10]. However, most health-related empowerment research has focused on chronic health conditions, such as mental health, diabetes, cancers, and disability [11-15], ...
The study specifically assessed whether VSLAs for safe motherhood is a viable option for facilitating access to emergency health care. This was in line with the fact that VSLAs in Kiboga district were started by AOGU in 2007 as a system of income generation to establish emergency financing for safe motherhood at community level so as to reduce the delays in accessing emergency obstetric care (EMOC).The study described the process of the VSLA concept within safe mother hood; assessed the role and effectiveness of VSLAs in helping people to access health care, improve safe mother hood and social economic status of people; identified challenges and came up with strategies to improve VSLA performance in Kiboga district. The study used a descriptive, cross-sectional design with both qualitative and quantitative methods. Data was collected from 100 respondents using a semi structured questionnaire with closed, open ended questions and a likert scale. It was analyzed using SPSS and presented using ...
EDITORIAL. Maternal health in Brazil: priorities and challenges. José Guilherme Cecatti; Mary Angela Parpinelli. Faculdade de Ciências Médicas, Universidade Estadual de Campinas, Campinas, Brasil. [email protected] The UN member states convened at the Millennium Summit in 2000 agreed that the world has sufficient technology, resources, knowledge, and experience to deal with the majority of the problems that prevent human development for all, particularly for people in poor and developing countries.. Brazil is a signatory to the Millennium Declaration, and the most recent Brazilian National Progress Report on the Millennium Development Goals points to important strides, especially in the fight against extreme poverty and hunger, the reduction of infant mortality, and the struggle against diseases like HIV/AIDS, malaria, tuberculosis, and leprosy. However, forecasts are bleak for achieving the goal of improved maternal health. Despite progress, the inequalities are striking. Gender, ...
Our program is focused on methods and analysis, drawing heavily on quantitative and computational approaches. Most MPH programs have more population-focused coursework on disease prevention, nutrition, maternal-child health, etc., and less on methods and research. For students in the academic program, we emphasize clinical research done by physician scientists, something that is not taught in most public health programs. Students who graduate from our program should be prepared to move towards research careers whereas students in MPH programs may be better prepared for entry level jobs in public health departments ...

According to Coad and Dunstall (2011), the puerperium is sometimes considered to be the Cinderella of midwifery and the effects of pregnancy on maternal health post-delivery receive little emphasis. Therefore, the midwifes role is to observe and monitor changes and be able to differentiate between normal maternal physiology and abnormality. This is because, the puerperal mother could be very vulnerable to physiological stress which would potentially lead to a pathological condition (Coad and Dunstall, 2011). NMC Rules and Standards (2012) emphasised that, the midwife is expected to provide care to women and babies in the postnatal period for not less than 10 days or for such longer period as considered necessary. More so, relevant healthcare professionals such as the midwife, who care for mothers and babies should have demonstrated competency and sufficient ongoing clinical experience in undertaking maternal and newborn physical examinations and recognising abnormalities (NICE, 2015). ...
