Kia ora and welcome to our 41st edition. 

eCALD Research Commentary [30th Edition] April 2019

This commentary focuses on New Zealand and International studies of perinatal depression in CALD women. Of the 4.7 million people who live in New Zealand, more than 25 per cent were born overseas. Of all regions, Auckland has the highest proportion (40%) of overseas-born. We have relatively high fertility rates. Between 12 and 20 per cent of women experience a mental health issue during pregnancy or in the first year following birth. The most common diagnoses are depression and/or anxiety in both antenatal and postnatal periods. The reviewed information includes: risk factors associated with antenatal and postnatal depression; evaluation of postnatal support groups for migrant women; CALD women’s experiences of perinatal mental health services; recognising PND symptoms in migrant women; and the association between acculturation and postnatal depression among migrant women.
