    A new AI Algorithm to identify the risk of childbirth PTSD

    A fresh AI algorithm shows promise in detecting signs of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) related to childbirth, as per a joint study by researchers from Israel and the US.

    Globally, childbirth-related PTSD affects around eight million individuals annually. Present diagnostic methods require evaluation by a physician, which is both time-consuming and expensive.

    Untreated, this condition can disrupt breastfeeding, bonding with the infant, and the desire for future pregnancies. It can also exacerbate maternal depression, increasing the risk of suicidal thoughts and behaviors.

    Published in Scientific Reports, the study revealed that AI successfully identified a significant portion of individuals with the disorder and those at risk.

    The study involved 1,295 postpartum participants who completed a questionnaire and provided brief narratives about their childbirth experiences.

    Researchers from Bar-Ilan University (Israel), Massachusetts General Hospital, and Harvard Medical School (US) trained an AI model on narratives from patients showing high CB-PTSD symptoms on the questionnaire.

    According to researchers, the model accurately pinpointed participants likely to have CB-PTSD based on their questionnaire scores.

    Published in Scientific Reports, the study demonstrated that AI could effectively identify a significant portion of individuals with the disorder and a considerable proportion at risk.

    The research involved 1,295 postpartum participants who completed a questionnaire and provided brief narratives, about 30 words each, regarding their childbirth experiences.

    Researchers from Bar-Ilan University in Israel, along with those from Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School in the US, trained an AI model to analyze narratives from patients exhibiting high CB-PTSD symptoms on the questionnaire.

    “In summary, the model accurately recognized the narratives of participants likely to have CB-PTSD due to their high scores on the questionnaire,” stated the researchers.
