Antepartum bed rest is prescribed for approximately 700,000 women with pregnancy complications each year. However, obstetricians are unaware of the side effects of bed rest and as a result, symptoms are ignored and untreated (Maloni, et al, 1998). The purpose of this NIH funded repeated measures longitudinal study was to assess depression/dysphoria as measured by the MAACL-R among high-risk pregnant women upon hospital admission, discharge, at delivery, and at 2, 4, and 6 weeks postpartum. The sample was 63 pregnant women on hospital bed rest with the diagnosis of preterm labor. Antepartum dysphoria significantly decreased across time (F=23.58, df 5, p < .001). Positive affect- sensation seeking significantly increased across time (F=53.16, df 5, p < .001). Women with Hobel Obstetric Risk scores equal to or >46 had significantly greater dysphoria at all times than those below the median (<46)(F=4.53, df 1, p=.37). Antepartum dysphoria scores were significantly correlated but not with postpartum measures. Similarly, postpartum dysphoria measures were significantly correlated. Gestational age at birth was significantly correlated with postpartum dysphoria at all times. Women are clinically depressed upon hospital admission and depression lessens across time but less so for women at very high risk.
