Stillbirth as risk factor for depression and anxiety in the subsequent pregnancy: a cohort study.
I've really got to figure out how to get money to do one of these studies. I mean seriously! Use your common sense people!
Oh...but it's even better...there is actually debate...
Stillbirth as risk factor for depression and anxiety in subsequent pregnancy - Letter to the Editor
My favorite quote...
Depression after stillbirth may simply reflect normal process of grieving
Again, I gotta say...ya think?!?!
My OB (the one I'm not too happy with) never offered me any sort of counseling after Alex died. The hospital where he was delivered never offered me any sort of counseling either. The perinatologist said, "If you walked out here on the street and got hit by a bus, we wouldn't just pick you up, brush you off, and send you on your way. You have been hit by the emotional equivalent of a bus. You should at least be offered some services to help you cope." So off I go, providers name in hand. Guess what? Not covered by insurance.
So what is the source of depression and anxiety here? geez, people, do the math!
