Abstract: Background Depression during pregnancy or after childbirth is the most frequent perinatal illness affecting women. We investigated the length distribution of a trinucleotide repeat in RAI1, which has not been studied in perinatal depression or in the Chinese population. Methods Cases (n=139) with confirmed diagnosis of clinical (major) depression related to pregnancy/postpartum were recruited from the outpatient clinic. Controls were patients who came to the obstetrics clinics and scored
