Cautioned Pariante: “The longer you've been depressed and the more episodes you have and more severe they are, the worse are the biological impacts."

Another such disastrous effect of depression is the birth of preterm infants, which is known to compromise their health and sometimes-even their existence.

Led by Veronica O'Keane of the Institute of Psychiatry at King's College London, researchers conducted the first clinical study into depression found in pregnant women.
