Core Tip

Core Tip: Pregnancy-induced hypertension usually manifests as an elevation of blood pressure, oedema, multiple organ damage, eclampsia, and even coma. Here, we analyzed the factors related to postpartum depression in patients with pregnancy-induced hypertension. We used vitamin A deficiency during pregnancy and puerperium, family history of hypertension, maternal intestinal flora imbalance, eicosapentaenoic acid, and docosahexaenoic acid to construct a nomogram evaluated and confirmed to have good predictive performance. It is a breakthrough in the prediction of postpartum depression in pregnancy-induced hypertension.
