Poor mental health is common during pregnancy and is strongly associated with several adverse maternal and child outcomes with long term consequences such as postpartum depression, preterm birth, and developmental problems in offspring. Identification of pregnant women who have poor mental health or are at risk for developing these conditions is important, particularly as there is evidence that non-pharmacologic options are effective in their management during the antenatal period. My research has been focused on identifications of risk factors of transient and chronic maternal mental health as well as its trajectories over the perinatal period. I am also interested in conceptualization and measurement of maternal, screening and addressing poor maternal mental health. Pregnancy outcomes and labour interventions are other areas of my research interests.
