The Motherhood Center is the first of its kind program in New York City that provides a menu of treatment options for new and expecting mothers suffering from PMADs.
Whether you are an OBGYN, Pediatrician, Doula Midwife or any other professional that comes in contact with pregnant or postpartum women, it’s important to be familiar with the prevalence of perinatal mood and anxiety disorders or PMADs. 1 in 7 women will suffer from a PMAD, and fortunately these symptoms are treatable when appropriately diagnosed and managed with the right care.
WHAT IS THE SUCCESS RATE?
Fortunately, perinatal mood and anxiety disorders are highly treatable, over a short period of time. Treatment is generally 10-20 days, during which time most women show significant improvement. To measure self-reported anxiety and depression, we used the Edinburgh Postpartum Depression Scale (EPDS), which is scored between 0 and 30, with 12.5 signifying a likely episode of depression. At intake our average patient EPDS score is over 20 and at discharge it is less than 10.
