This is what I posted for my topic and my problem statement as well as the references that I used. Feel free to make it better if you can:
Research topic: Mental health during the postpartum period
Problem statement: Postpartum depression is experienced by 13% of new mothers and there are little to no programs available for them (CDC, 2020). Peripartum and postpartum depression can have a negative impact on the newborn by causing premature birth, low birth weight, bonding issues, and sleeping and feeding problems (American Psychiatric Association, 2020). Women should be screened for depression during pregnancy and in the postpartum period for up to 6 months.
