Abstract

PROBLEM. Postpartum depression. METHODS. A prospective study of puerperal women (N = 102) was carried out to determine the incidence of postpartum depression. Measures of depression were collected via the BDI on women attending childbirth education classes in a large southeastern metropolitan area. FINDINGS. Eight percent (n = 8) of the women reported emotional, behavioral, or cognitive symptoms suggestive of postpartum depression. Anecdotal data reflect that the incidence is probably higher. CONCLUSIONS. Further study using measures that test atypical depression and that include of qualitative measures to obtain subjective data are recommended.
