Such children can go on to suffer anxiety and depression late in their lives. It can also affect the bonding between mother and child with an increased risk of developmental delays in children as mothers may not be able to interact with their babies.

It is important to treat mothers with depression as children of such mothers can go on to suffering mental health problems themselves.
