BeschreibungProject in collaboration with the University of Applied Sciences Bern, Discipline Midwifery-Research Lead: Prof. Dr. Eva Cignacco. Background:Mental illness of women in pregnancy and early motherhood is widely recognised as having significant implications for the mother, the child and the family (Burke, 2003; Logsdon, Wisner, Hanusa, & Phillips, 2003). The most significant maternal mental disorders are characterized as depressive symptoms during pregnancy associated with anxiety (15-30%) (O'Hara, Gorman, & Wright, 1996), while postpartum depression within the first year after childbirth shows a prevalence rate of 13%-19%(O'Hara & McCabe, 2013). The consequences of MMD are varied and may affect the lives of women and their families drastically and in a long lasting ways (O'Hara & McCabe, 2013). In most countries are not screened and assessed adequately nor documented systematically or treated appropriately. For Switzerland MMD can be considered an underresearched area and we assume a gap in health care provision for affected mothers. Aims of the project: Data analysis of inpatient (Medizinische Statistik, BFS) and ambulant care (Helsana) to estimate prevalence rate of MMD in Switzerland. Development of a qualitative research proposal with health care professional providing care to affected women and single interviews with affected women and their families itself.
