Abstract

This article describes strategies for using a postpartum depression screening tool with women from two immigrant minority populations (from Yemen and from the Punjab region of India). Techniques to maximize success while working with interpreters and with women's unique cultural considerations are presented. Two case studies provide examples of challenges presented and overcome by women from each of these populations.
