POST-NATAL DEPRESSION SURVEY
FOR PARENTS OF MULTIPLE BIRTH CHILDREN
This is an important international study, looking to discover the incidence of post-natal depression (PND, or PPMD) in families with multiple birth children. The study is also hoping to identify some of the risk factors, and hopefully improve the outcomes for these families.
The results of this important research will be released at the ISTS Congress in Budapest in November 2014.
