Association between severe maternal morbidity and psychiatric illness within 1 year of hospital discharge after delivery.
The purpose of this study was to estimate whether severe maternal morbidity is associated with increased risk of psychiatric illness in the year after delivery hospital discharge. Results showed that although absolute numbers were modest, severe maternal morbidity was associated with increased risk of severe postpartum psychiatric morbidity and substance use disorder. The highest period of risk extended to 4 months after hospital discharge.
