What are the benefits of counseling for perinatal depression?

The United States Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) has found compelling evidence which suggests that receiving a counseling intervention, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy and interpersonal therapy, can be an effective measure in preventing perinatal depression in women who are at increased risk. Risk factors for perinatal depression include a history of depression, experiencing depressive symptoms, complications during pregnancy, unwanted pregnancies, physical or sexual abuse, stressful life events, dearth of financial or social support, and diabetes. The USPSTF also found that receiving counseling intervention presents a low risk and low likelihood of serious harm for the client.
