    ABSTRACT: There is a significant number of pregnant women who eventually have some kind of psychiatric symptoms during pregnancy. This is a period that involves significant biological, psychological, and social changes. In this chapter, we review this issue in its entirety, examining in detail how gender roles and social models of maternity/paternity may contribute to the development of gestational depression in women. We also review the different treatments used. Finally, we include a section focusing on the father figure from the same perspective and emotional disorders that he could also have in this process.
