The goal of this presentation is to explore the gut-brain connection as it pertains to perinatal mood disorders. We will explore some of the new research that has emerged regarding the microbiome and anxiety/depression and specifically research about the microbiome in pregnancy and its effects on the neonate and perinatal conditions. As part of that we will also explore newer and smaller research on conventional postpartum depression management, links to neurobehavioral concerns for children, and how the microbiome may be at play in maternal postpartum transition and depression
