Postnatal Depression (PND):
PND, first named by the psychiatrist Brice Pitt in 1968, is a more long-standing category of mental illness than those listed above.
A significant development of the 1990s onwards has been the emergence of a trend to normalize PND.
A variety of organizations and commentators have come to deem PND a "silent epidemic," afflicting many more women than has previously been considered the case.
According to a recent survey by Prima Baby magazine, one in five new mothers have the condition. Netmums, the online support group for mothers, argues there is a "clear upward trend in rates of Postnatal depression" compared to the 1970s, with almost 1 in 3 now victims
of the illness.
There is advocacy for new definitions of what PND is. Feminist writer Kate Figes, author of Life After Birth, thus states, "PND is a sliding scale, starting with the 'baby blues' affecting 80 percent of women, and ending with puerperal psychosis....
The vast majority of women sit somewhere on this scale." Siobahn Curham, author of Antenatal and Postnatal Depression, goes further, claiming most mothers experience PND
since, "as many as 90 percent of new mothers experience some feelings of depression after the birth."
Antenatal Depression: Since the mid-1990s, it has been argued increasingly that research suggests many, if not more women are depressed during pregnancy than post-pregnancy. This incidence of "antenatal depression" has been deemed an unrecognized problem, and it is claimed that maternal depression needs to be thought of as on a spectrum with a variety of causes (not only childbirth and early motherhood).
As a result, much literature now uses the category "Antenatal and Postnatal Depression."
