Unintended Pregnancy Increases Risk of Depression In Child
(image) Unexpected pregnancies can increase the risk of depressive symptoms in the child during early adulthood. This may not be the case for the children from intended pregnancies.

Depression Overshadows the Past As Well As the Present
(image) Depression makes sufferers see the present and the future as sad, but research has shown it also casts a long shadow over people's memories of the past.
