Parturients were eligible to participate following live born delivery in one of the three participating medical centers during the above-mentioned period, which was during the first lockdown enforced by the government in Israel to prevent the spread of coronavirus infection. Parturients younger than 18 years or who delivered earlier than 34 gestational weeks were excluded. A comprehensive team of physicians and medical students, both Hebrew and Arabic speaking, approached all women virtually approximately 10 weeks after delivery—the custom time interval from birth that is used to assess PPD and postpartum PTSD symptoms or other birth related psychopathologies [19]. Women were given a brief explanation of the study protocol and were asked to participate in the study. Following oral consent, a text message was sent to each of them, that contained a link to an online questionnaire, either in Hebrew or in Arabic, according to the participant’s preference. Questionnaires were sent using the online Qualtrics survey platform.
