However, maternal depression can take a large toll on the infant and the relationship they have, but the mother is usually not the only care taker of the baby. Evidence shows that prenatal and postnatal depression can have adverse effects. There is limited information in regards to the father’s mental health and its effects on the infant. Although, it is said that if the environment is more of a stressful one, the likely hood of behavioral problems is higher in children whether they may play a lot of video games or not (Linebarger, D.L.

Week five; the heart takes its first beat. Week sixteen; the lungs take their first breath. Week twenty-three; the first movement is felt. To have the privilege to be part of this life-changing journey and a woman’s story is what inspires me to become a midwife. Pregnancy and birth are natural processes in which I believe all women are designed for and therefore capable of.
293 women were interviewed (305 pregnant women originally conducted the questionnaire) three months after delivery giving time to obtain results for the postpartum period. Considering that the type of delivery could be a possible factor that influences research data when it comes to interpretation, the researchers consulted with the women about the type of
Baby Project This past weekend I embarked on a journey, and no probably not the journey you think of. This weekend I had to take home the Real Care Baby project. Going into this project I was not really quite sure what to expect.
Research Appraisal of Breastfeeding Self-Efficacy Intervention With Primiparous Mothers Maeghen McCutchen Georgia Baptist College of Nursing of Mercer University “I have neither given nor received help on this assignment, and pledge this work to be my original composition.” Synopsis In 2011, the Journal of Obestric, Gynecologic & Neonatal Nursing released a study about breastfeeding self-efficiacy with primiparous mothers. This research study’s purpose was to determine the “feasibility, compliance, and acceptability of a newly developed intervention” (McQueen, Dennis, Stremler, & Norman, 2011, p. 36).
First, research finding from both Johnson et al (2012) and Spencer et al (2014) shows a high degree of internal reliability. Though different methods of analytical approaches were adopted by both researchers in analyzing data generated, findings were similar. Secondly, the research provides the needed sample size of the topic and was able to give an in-depth knowledge of the experiences faced by mothers after childbirth. These findings from Johnson et al was grounded in an already existing theory which makes the research externally valid and generalized. Thirdly, due to the duration of the study, it is uncertain if all the participants continued with the research.
Focus upon studying, I find this subject with an inviting range of unique options in the children category. Truthfully, this study will assist me to learn the poles apart complexities associated with the maternal depression factor and child development. And further, upon reviewing and reading diverse literature, in my view, the thoughtful study on the said topic will open more doors for child development process based on maternal depression factor. In addition, I accept as true that there are more than a few major concepts that I am uninformed of, and on account of which, going for in this field will enrich my talents and knowledge to facilitate not only my interest, but to boost my quick-witted skills as well in the field of pediatrics that will benefit me to gain different business medical opportunities and scope together with getting vast knowledge of the association between mother depression and child
Fear of childbirth may be related to worry about labor pain, childbirth tears, doubt about ability to giving birth vaginally, lack of support, being lonely during labor, and fear of child death or mother’s own death [2, 3]. Studies indicated that women’s fear related to childbirth is multidimensional and can be categorized into domains including pain, obstetric injuries, loss of control, insufficient support and loss of the baby’s or their own life [2, 4]. These fears may cause complications such as experiencing severe labor pain , postpartum depression or anxiety, physical problems, and impaired mother-fetus attachment [6-8]. Anxiety and stress can increase the levels of catecholamine, which can
In the case of Postnatal depression mothers are said to have a more negative affect towards their child, the parents consciousness begins to fade as well as a change in their behaviour. Parents that are seriously affected by this disorder are less likely to interact with their child in a loving way, according to (Leckman et al., 2007: 95) They also seem less prone to interact with the infant in a special way, calling him/her by a nickname, imagining the infant 's future, or idealizing the child. Taking into consideration the lack of affection during postnatal depression there have been many studies that specifically demonstrate the connection between this
There was limited data collection was made out. Demographic qualities of the sample, variables comprised for age, monthly family income and unemployed women. The authors should include primary and tertiary education level not merely looking at women who have finished their secondary school level. There was also no sample done for marital status, duration of residence in Hong Kong, the measure of household, work status before, then afterward delivery, kind of their job, whether staying with guardians/guardians-in-law, the number of kids, equality, and the method of conveyance.

Prepare For The Postpartum Period A postpartum period or postnatal period is the period beginning immediately after the birth of a child and extending for about six weeks. The World Health Organization (WHO) describes the postpartum period as the most critical and yet the most neglected phase in the lives of mothers and babies. The postpartum period can be a trying time- there are sleepless nights, hormones causing your emotions to range from anger and depression to exhilaration and joy and the physical healing that needs to happen after a vaginal birth or a cesarean section. Having a plan for the first six weeks of your life as mother is critical for your health and healing.

From a clinical point of view, informative, brief communications throughout antenatal care on each examination should be provided to all pregnant women, couples should be reevaluated and supported after delivery via postpartum counselling. Unanswered questions and future research Future studies with randomized controlled trials are warranted. Conclusions. The addition of individualized postpartum counselling to antenatally educated women increased modern contraceptive use.
