The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorder, 5th edition (DSM-5) classifies

perinatal depression as a major depressive disorder that is identifie d during pregnancy or within four weeks postpartum, although some experts extend this to within one year postpartum.

The DSM is publishe d by the American Psychiatric Association and provides clinicians

with official definitions and criteria for diagnosing mental disorders.

Perinatal mental illness affects up to 1 in 5 of new and expectant mums and covers a wide range of conditions (NHS England, 2018).

The figure may be higher among women from minority ethnic groups as studies

have demonstrated lack of awareness of perinatal mental health disorder within BAME (Watson et al, 2019).

Ethnicity, culture and health beliefs does affect health seeking behaviour especially among women from minority ethnic groups.

Perinatal mental illness affects up to 20% of new and expectant mums and covers a wide range of conditions.
