MedEd PPD reports on a new research article in Maternal Child Health Journal on “Using the internet to screen for postpartum depression“.  The results are interesting as those answering via internet had higher scores (more likely depressed), and more Asian and Hispanic mothers participated via internet than in person.  The conclusion was that the Internet is a “viable and feasible tool to screen for PPD.”

PPD Support Hawaii has an online Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale linked on their About PPD page.
