mHealth Mindfulness Intervention for Women with Perinatal Depression: A Feasibility Study

The primary goal of this project is to assess the feasibility of conducting a mobile-health mindfulness intervention (mHealth) study among pregnant and postpartum women with depressive symptoms. Perinatal depression has numerous adverse health consequences, including preterm delivery, negative maternal-infant interaction, and child behavior problems. We will recruit ~30 women who present symptoms of perinatal depression from the OBGYN clinics at Kaiser Permanente and use a single-arm intervention design to assess the feasibility of conducting a six-week mHealth mindfulness intervention. We will also obtain preliminary efficacy results consisting of patient-reported outcomes on depression, anxiety, perceived stress, health behaviors, mindfulness, and sleep.
