  • Yes, prenatal depression can cause physiological changes in the body, increasing the risk of developing CVD
  • Maybe, as prenatal depression could reduce a woman's physical activity levels, contributing to weight gain or obesity and thus increasing the risk of developing CVD
  • No, limited research links the association between perinatal depression and CVD

      A recent population-based study investigated the link between prenatal depression and the risk of developing cardiovascular disease within 24 months after delivery. The study analyzed data from 119,422 pregnancies between 2007 and 2019 and found that individuals with prenatal depression had a higher risk of developing CVD, including ischemic heart disease, cardiomyopathy, cardiac arrest, and hypertension. The increased risk persisted even after accounting for co-occurring hypertensive disorders during pregnancy. The findings highlight the importance of screening and counseling individuals for CVD postpartum to prevent adverse long-term cardiovascular health outcomes associated with prenatal depression and other pregnancy complications.
