dc.description.abstractPostpartum depression (PPD) is a public health concern that impacts 1 in 7 women in the United States after giving birth. PPD can leave a serious impact on mother and baby’s health, leading to symptoms of depression and feelings of extreme sadness, indifference and anxiety, as well as changes in sleep, energy, and appetite. The most common forms of treatment for PPD include medication management and psychotherapy, however, recent studies have aimed to discover the effectiveness of more contemporary methods, such as mindfulness-based training. Mindfulness-based training is a form of intervention that can be used to mitigate symptoms of depression and anxiety and includes interventions such as expressive writing, yoga, self-compassion training, stretching and breathwork, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, and smartphone-based mindfulness training. This CAT assessed the available literature on the effectiveness of these intervention methods. There is evidence for the use of mindfulness-based training as a therapy tool in conjunction with traditional methods for women diagnosed with PPD to address symptoms that impact daily functioning.en_US
