This paper discusses how the early diagnosis of postpartum depression is crucial given the negative impacts depression can have on a mother and her interactions with her new infant and, if left undiagnosed, the depression experienced by the mother can equate to long-term behavior problems in the infant as he/she grows up. The research question posed in this paper is "Does early diagnosis and intervention for a mother experiencing postpartum depression, decrease the risk of behavioral or learning difficulties for the new child as he/she is growing up?"
From the Paper:"The National Women's Health Information Center advises that postpartum depression is a result of the hormonal changes that occur naturally in a woman after the birth of her child (NWHIC, 2005). Other factors that can contribute towards postpartum depression can include feelings of tiredness, being overwhelmed at the responsibility of looking after a new baby, feelings of loss of identity once becoming a mother and feelings of loss of time as the new baby is so dependent and so very time consuming (NWHIC, 2005)."
