MOURA, Valéria Feitosa de Sousa; PEDRAO, Luiz Jorge; SOUZA, Adrielle Cristina Silva  e  BOAVENTURA, Rafaela Peres. Depression among pregnant women at the end of pregnancy. SMAD, Rev. Eletrônica Saúde Mental Álcool Drog. (Ed. port.) [online]. 2015, vol.11, n.4, pp. 234-242. ISSN 1806-6976.

The research can be described as a quantitative study which aimed to examine depressive patterns among pregnant women. Interviews were conducted as well as a Beck Depression Inventory, applied to 42 pregnant women with gestational age under 36 weeks. Obtained results: 17% of pregnant women had indicative signs of depression and 7% had dysphoria. During the research it was perceived that being 35 years or more, not having a partner, having a low family income, being black and having a job were risk factors and determinants for depression. None of the pregnant women who practiced recreational activities presented signs of depression, while 20.6% not enjoyed these activities showed depression. It is concluded that depression is a reality in the lives of pregnant women and prenatal care is important for the detection of these patterns.
