Abstract Pregnancy, being a unique life event with conspicuous physiological and psychological changes, can induce perinatal depression in many expectant mothers. The objective of this paper was to receive published articles on the efficacy of the cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) to prevent perinatal depression. MEDLINE, Science Direct, the British Nursing Index and Archive and the Cumulative Index of Nursing and Allied Health Literature (CINAHL) were searched for English language articles from 2011 through 2013 inclusive. Ten quality primary quantitative studies were selected according to a critical framework checklist. The results of this review highlight the effectiveness of the CBT to prevent perinatal depression. The various formats were included modified version, in-home setting, tailor-made design or internet-based approach either in group or individually. Duration of the CBT was designed from 5 to 16 sessions and each session was lasting for 45 minute to 2 hours. All of them were focused on correcting the negative distorted cognitions and dysfunctional underlying beliefs that maintain depressive symptoms. A brief CBT with group approach or internet format may be considering in further recommendation. A brief is a time-limited, cost-effective, efficacious and an internet CBT could provide women with the flexibility of receiving treatment at a time and place convenient for them.
