Oregon PRAMS 2012–2018: Revealing racial inequity in postpartum depression

According to some women who are undiagnosed and untreated for postpartum depression, the majority of women are undiagnosed and untreated for postpartum depression. In Oregon, we investigated the presence of PPD inequity in recognizing historical racial and ethnic gaps in health care. We investigated the relationship between PPD, maternal characteristics, and socioeconomic variables using data from the Oregon pregnancy risk assessment survey 2012–2018 and univariate weighted logistic regression models. When combined with other important variables, a further phased review determined whether race/ethnicity remained a predictor of PPD. About 17% of women said they did not discuss depression with a provider during pregnancy, with over 12% reporting PPD symptoms. Compared to White women, Black, Asian/Pacific Islander, American–Indian, and mixed race mothers had higher rates of PPD than to White women. Significant differences in the odds of PPD symptoms remained between Black, APIs, and Indian mothers compared to White mothers, according to the phased review.
