Abstract:

Depression and gestational diabetes are common and serious problems during pregnancy. While information exists regarding maternal and fetal outcomes in women who have either depression or gestational diabetes, there is a paucity of data regarding outcomes in women who have both. This article reviews and summarizes studies examining depression during pregnancy as well as an analysis of six studies examining depression in women with gestational diabetes, and discusses implications for clinicians and future research needs.
