: Based on recent literature, it is already known that untreated PMADs can have severe consequences for the health and well-being of the affected woman and her family, including long-term consequences for the cognitive, emotional, and behavioral development of her child. This study adds to the literature by providing new data on prevalence and risk factors for these disorders among Black women who are understudied. The prevalence of PMADs among this sample of women was higher than national estimates. This study provides practitioners with community-driven relevant data that may inform approaches to combat PMADs.
