Access from EThOS:
Previous research suggests that postpartum depression is related to psychosocial factors, such as life events and difficulties (e.g. Brown & Harris, 1978), and to relationship factors, such as insecure maternal attachment status (e.g. Bifulco et al. 2004). The current study aimed to confirm the relationships between life events/difficulties and postpartum depression, and between insecure maternal attachment and postpartum depression. The current study also aimed to investigate the relationships between life events/difficulties, insecure maternal attachment, and postpartum depression outcome following a preventive intervention for postpartum depression.
