Postpartum Progress Announces Postpartum Depression Bill of Rights for Mothers
Date:8/15/2013

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) August 15, 2013

Postpartum Progress (postpartumprogress.org), a national nonprofit organization that raises awareness of postpartum depression (PPD), is launching the first Postpartum Depression Bill of Rights for pregnant and new mothers.

Given the lack of consistency in screening, limited healthcare provider education and persistent stigma, it is important for pregnant and new mothers to be aware of their rights in terms of how they should be treated and helped for PPD, the most common complication of childbirth. One in seven mothers in the US struggle with postpartum depression each year, yet only 15% ever receive professional help. Postpartum Progress believes that every new mother should have the right to enjoy the highest attainable standard of mental health, regardless of geographic location, marital status, sexual orientation or socioeconomic status.

To that end, the PPD & Maternal Mental Health Bill of Rights states that every new mother should have:

1. The right to be heard fully about her perinatal mental health without dismissal, stigma or downplay of her concerns or symptoms. She has the right to be treated with dignity and respect.

2. The right to be screened for perinatal mood and anxiety disorders like postpartum depression by trained healthcare providers using an evidence-based screening tool delivered with compassion and professionalism. She should be informed of the purpose of the screening, what the results of her screen are and how those results will be used to help her.

3. The right to be treated by healthcare providers who give her accurate information about perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, including:

  •     Her risk factors
