Purpose: One million women per year have pregnancy complications and 700,000 are prescribed bed rest. Researchers have investigated depressive symptoms among high-risk pregnant women using different tools. This study examined the reliability among three commonly used tools to measures depressive symptoms in women with a high-risk pregnancy across time. Conceptual Framework: A newly developed middle range theory about the effects of prescribing antepartum bed rest states that women with a high-risk pregnancy experience threat to self and fetus that adversely impacts upon the psychosocial status of the woman. Sample: The convenience sample consisted of 87 pregnant women who were hospitalized for greater than two weeks, including 37 women hospitalized for 4 weeks. Inclusion criteria were healthy prior to pregnancy and a gestation between the ages of 21 to 33 weeks. Those with preconceptual medical or psychiatric morbidities were excluded. Methods: Three measures of depressive symptoms were used, The Multiple Affect Adjective Checklist-Revised (MAACL-R), the Profile of Mood States (POMS) and the Center for Epidemiologic Studies-Depression Scale (CES-D). Data were collected upon hospital admission and at 2 and 4 weeks of antepartum hospitalization. Results: Symptoms of depression as assessed by the three tools upon admission and across hospitalization were high and decreased. Reliabilities (Cronbach alpha) of the three tools at admission were .91 MAACL-R, .92 POMS, and .88 CESD. Reliabilities were similarly high at week 2, week 4, and over all. Correlations for the same tool across the three time periods were significant and moderately high. Correlations between the MAACL-R, POMS and CESD at admission, week 2 and 4 were moderate, and significant (p< 01). Conclusions: Each of the tools has high internal consistency but correlations between instruments which were moderate suggest that the tools measure slightly different dimensions of depressive symptomatology.
