Predictors that Correlate to Obesity and Postpartum Depression

Approximately 13% of new mothers in the U.S. experience postpartum symptoms, which often go undetected. This research looks at identifying those characteristics that obese women and women of ideal weight cope with placing them at increased risk of postpartum depression. This study will be on the findings of a retrospective chart review of 150 randomly selected patient charts from a family medicine center in Rochester, NY. The purpose of this research is to help health care workers educate family members and patients regarding the signs, symptoms and consequences of untreated PPD.
